Further Information

The Disabled World web site was launched in Early May 2004 to provide a much needed international online community for people with disabilities. Disabled World is managed by Ian and Lynn Langtree, a couple dedicated to assisting seniors and people with disabilities.

With over 54 million people classified as disabled in the USA alone (The Census Bureau), Ian and Lynn saw the need to provide people with disabilities a web site where people with disabilities of all ages, and from all walks of life, could unite on common ground free from membership fees and charges, share experiences, information and provide tips of assistance to the newly and life long disabled.

Disabled World believes in the Social Model of Disability, a belief developed by disabled people in the 1970's, the social model changes the focus away from people's impairments and towards removing the barriers that disabled people face in every day life.

Disabled World is labeled as a family friendly site and is an associate member of The Internet Content Rating Association (ICRA) which is an independent, non-profit organization whose main aim is to empower parents to protect their children from potentially harmful content on the internet.
