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.
- Our disability fishing information provides a handy resource of how and where articles for those that enjoy recreational fishing.
- Our new disability flying and hunting sections are designed to offer further assistance for those wishing to start these activities or obtain further information.
