Types Of Disability

There are different types of disability that you must know about so that you can easily categorize the disabled people around you.

* Eyesight Disability includes people with no vision, or some functional vision.
* Hearing Disability includes people who are completely deaf or have partial hearing in one or both ears and require a hearing aid.
* Mobility Disability refers to a wide range of people with varying types of physical disabilities.
* Cognitive Disability refers to people with dyslexia and learning difficulties.

If anybody around you fits in above mentioned types then please make sure that he/she should be treated well. 'No discrimination' should be your guiding motto.
