NBC The More You Know: Disability Awareness

If all you see is the disability…you might be missing a lot. People with disabilities are just people. – Meredith Vieira, NBC News

“The federal government defines a person with a disability as someone who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more “major life activities.” According to the U.S. Census Bureau, about 49.7 million Americans have a disability, which includes people of all ages. About two-thirds of these individuals have a severe disability. People with disabilities represent all races, colors and creeds.”
