World Governments are finally recognizing that people with disabilities face significant barriers to recreation, sport, and wellness, and that access to these opportunities are more critical to people with disabilities than those without disabilities.

People with disabilities sometimes participate in artistic activities as part of expressive therapy (expressive arts therapy or creative arts therapy). One such example is people with disabilities are finally being portrayed more in both movies and television shows around the world. Some of our disability entertainment articles listed below focus on these actors and actresses with disabilities.

Expressive therapy may take the form of writing therapy, music therapy, drama therapy, or another artistic method

Disability in the arts is an aspect within various arts disciplines of inclusive practices involving disability. Note, disability in the arts is distinguished from disability art in that it refers to art that includes people with disabilities, whether in themes, performance, or the creation of the artwork, rather than works focusing on disability as the central theme.

Easter Seals

Easter Seals challenges and encourages those living with disabilities to get active and get involved. Their specialized, fully-accessible sport, recreation and active living programs encourage active participation and enhanced well-being. At Easter Seals camps every child-no matter their disability receives the encouragement and support they need to challenge themselves, build confidence and make the most of their abilities - More information regards camps for children with disability.

We also feature information and articles on hobbies for the disabled and elderly including accessible gardening, and other recreational hobbies suitable for people with disabilities, seniors, and baby boomers.
