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, or a person with disability are greater than you realize. Current disability statistics reveal that over 1.3 billion, around 16 percent of the world's population, have a disability. During our lifetime, almost all of us will have some type of disability. No one is excluded from joining this group including celebrities and world leaders.
