As for inclusiveness this may depend on individual circumstances, but my observations are that people with disabilities whether they be physical or otherwise are not as included in daily life as they are in other countries. Many live separately from their families in special homes where they may also have work facilities so do not mix that much with others. They are more segregated than is the case elsewhere. It's changing slowly, but you may find it not as welcoming as you expect. There is this organisation which may also be helpful to you
You’ve said this before I think but that is totally not how it is here.
These things may vary depending on the canton as is the case with so many things here but in Neuchâtel at least the aim is for people with disabilities to be integrated into normal life as much as possible.

There are at least 10 people with obvious difficulties ( Down’s syndrome, autism, other learning difficulties, leg brace etc) of some kind working in the large coop here for example.
