Disability

Disability

A person has a disability if one has a physical or mental impairment, and the impairment has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on a person’s ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities. A reference to a disabled person is a reference to a person who has a disability; a reference to a person who has a particular protected characteristic is a reference to a person who has a particular disability; a reference to persons who share a protected characteristic is a reference to persons who have the same disability.

How can we ensure that people with disabilities are treated fairly and feel like they belong in our schools?
