Celebrate Disability Pride Month

Jul 27, 2022

What is a Disability?

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a disability is “any condition of the body or mind (impairment) that makes it more difficult for the person with the condition to do certain activities (activity limitation) and interact with the world around them (participation restrictions)”. 

The World Health Organization (WHO) explains that almost everyone will temporarily or permanently experience disability at some point in their life. Over 1 billion people – about 15% of the global population – currently experience disability, and this number is increasing due in part to population aging and an increase in the prevalence of non-communicable diseases. 

Some disabilities include, but are not limited to:

Vision

Movement

Thinking

Remembering

Learning

Communicating

Hearing

Mental health

Social relationships
