Knowing Disability isn't Everything

For most of us, our disability isn't the most important thing in our lives. It's one part of our lives that we need to know about, just like interests, strengths, talents, problems, and challenges. Because of your disability, some activities might be more difficult for you than for other people. On the flip side, some activities might be easier for you than for others.

Becoming clear about who you are and what works well for you will help you to fully participate in whatever you choose.

Knowing about your disability and how to explain it to others will help you to become more knowledgeable about yourself and help others to know more about you so that they can interact with you in a respectful way.
