WHAT IS A DISABILITY.




 

Adisability 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).

While it is difficult to make an all-encompassing list of each individual disability, we compiled a general list of most widely recognized types of disabilities. On the off chance that you can't locate your condition on this rundown and would like assistance gathering some information such as related reasonable accommodations, feel free to send us a message. Keep in mind that we are not medical professionals and all we can do is assist, it is up to you or your medical provider to find the correct course of action.
