What is a disability?

A Disability is when people have trouble with things like seeing, speaking, hearing, walking, thinking, feeling, or connecting with the community. 

Some people are born with a disability

Some people have a disability because of illness, accidents, or injuries

This can make it hard for people to live a normal life.

Some disabilities can’t be seen, like when people have trouble thinking clearly or hearing. Most people with disabilities can still do lots of things but they could do more with the right help and support.
