If you were born fifty years ago with any kind of birth defect, or either developed a disability during young adolescent or later years, more than likely, you’d be cast into an institution or locked up in your home. However, today because of laws created to protect the rights of people with disabilities, communities have become a source of life, support and strength. Listed below is information on the Americans with Disabilities Act, Positive Language in addressing people with disabilities and the seven major disability groups:

Interacting with People Who Have Visual Disabilities (Blind)
Interacting with People Who Have Invisible Disabilities
Interacting with People Who Are Deaf
Interacting with People Who Have Mobility Disabilities
Interacting with People With Intellectual Disabilites
Interacting with People Who Have Mental Disabilites
Interacting with People Who Speech Disabilites
