For the 11 days of the Paralympics, disabled athletes are centre stage - impressing and inspiring people up and down the country.
David Cameron said he hopes the Games will change people's views on disability.
But an exclusive ITV News/ComRes poll has found that while it may change attitudes - a worrying number of people believe discrimination will still continue.
