Disabled World

Disability News, Information, and Resources

Disabled World is an independent publisher established in 2004. Our primary goal is to offer a reliable source of disability news, statistics, and useful information to individuals with disabilities, their families, caregivers, and researchers. We accomplish this by publishing original reports, papers, and surveys, as well as quality reviewed material we receive from world governments, disability organizations, educational institutions and other authoritive sources.

Disability is a subject you may not think of as something that may happen to you. However, your chances of becoming disabled are greater than you realize. In fact, during our lifetime, almost all of us will have some type of disability.

Today, more people live with disabilities due to our aging societies and improved medical treatment. Some are born with a disability, others become disabled due to an illness or injury, and some develop them as they age. People with disabilities are the world's largest minority group anyone can join at any time and due to accidents and aging eventually do. No one is excluded from joining this group which includes famous people, celebrities, and world leaders.

Current disability statistics reveal that over 1.3 billion, around 16 percent of the world's population, have a disability, those whose hearing, visual, cognitive, mobility, speech or neural functions are impaired. A major challenge for people with disabilities is to be seen by the public, portrayed by the media, and treated by healthcare professionals, as individuals with abilities not just stereotyped as disabled.
