Notables with disabilities

Definition from the WHO: Disabilities is an umbrella term, covering impairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions. Impairment is a problem in body function or structure; an activity limitation is a difficulty encountered by an individual in executing a task or action; while a participation restriction is a problem experienced by an individual in involvement in life situations.

Persons with a disability are not a group sharing the same things. The only thing they share is that they all have a disability. But in the word 'disability' is included the word 'ability'. The different profiles of these notables will show the different achievements and performance. Things these notables achieved despite their disability, no with their disability as being part of them.

As this project progresses we might be able to define different groups of notables, for example:

  • Art & Culture
  • Heroes & Heroines
  • Politics & Government
  • Science & Education
  • Sports & Skills
