There are many different types of disabilities such as intellectual, physical, sensory, and mental illness.
While we wanted to share some information about different disabilities with you, remember, disability is not black and white. Two people with the same type of disability may not have the same experiences.
An intellectual disability may mean difficulty communicating, learning, and retaining information.
Different types of physical disabilities may affect, either temporarily or permanently, a person's physical capacity and/or mobility.
Different types of mental illness affect a person's thinking, emotional state and behaviours.
Different types of sensory disabilities affect one or more senses; sight, hearing, smell, touch, taste or spatial awareness.
