Physical Disability

Physical disabilities predominantly affect your movement, but it is not unusual to also have a learning disability. If you have a physical disability, you might be unable to walk without a wheelchair or prosthetic limb or have difficulty with motor skills like writing or feeding yourself. Any limitation to your physical functioning could be considered a physical disability, especially if everyday activities are impacted. This section covers information on a range of physical disabilities.
