Main Digest

Collection of clip art, photos, and printable pictures relating to disabilities and the disabled including accessibility signs and symbols.

Disability and medical clip art links to Braille, wheelchairs, canes, walkers, crutches, sign language, wheelchair basketball, and other disability images.

Probably the most recognizable picture associated with disability is the "stick figure in a wheelchair" sign which is th International Symbol of Access (see below), also commonly used as a symbol to define disability parking spaces. Though this symbol is used to denote disabilities in every day life. It doesn't tell the whole story, and it certainly doesn't help people with invisible disabilities whose disability isn't always obvious. Thus there are many other signs and symbols used today to assist and portray disability and accessibility.

The International Symbol of Access (ISA), (pictured below), also known as the (International) Wheelchair Symbol, was designed by Susanne Koefoed in 1968 and consists of a blue square overlaid in white with a stylized image of a person using a wheelchair. It is maintained as an international standard, ISO 7001, and a copyrighted image of the International Commission on Technology and Accessibility (ICTA), a committee of Rehabilitation International. Frequently, the symbol denotes the removal of environmental barriers, such as steps, to help also older people, parents with baby carriages, and travelers.
