So AG is going to release a new wheelchair. That's super awesome!! Now if we could just get them to make more disability friendly accessories I'd word it differently, but I'm not feeling all that great and that's the best I could think of, but hopefully you get what I mean.

Yes. Yes. YES.
Sticking in my opinion as a physically disabled teen, AG could do better. They certainly have the resources to do more, and I know Joss was a bit breakthrough for them in the disability representation department. However, it's been over a year. AG has yet to release a neurodivergent or physically disabled doll with a storyline, which I dislike. I know you can argue that Joss is visibly disabled because of her hearing aid, I'm taking more about mobility aids and such. Even having a doll who has, I don't know, an invisible disability written really well into their storyline would be bliss.
They could definitely do better. Gabrielle has a stutter. Blaire has a dairy intolerance. Joss has a hearing aid and is deaf in one ear. These are all lovely steps in the right direction, but I do certainly wish they'd kick it up a notch and release more. A power chair, a walker (cough posterior walker cough), ear defenders, something.
I agree with you, what we really need is more disabled dolls, or disability modifications in the CYO line!
