In this paper we are trying to assess the difficulties that have to journal the most disadvantaged sectors of the population, as are persons with disabilities and the elderly. For this we define and classify to the barriers that hinder or prevent the full participation of these groups in the community, as well as defining the persons with disabilities and the elderly, showing as much as possible what are the difficulties or barriers more frequent that they have to juggle. We also evaluate the existing legislation in the Argentinian Republic in these matters and the level of compliance on the part of the bound. We also analyze the lack of knowledge, both of the same affected groups, and for the community as a whole of the existence of these barriers and how to eliminate them or at least mitigate its impact.
