Information Regarding Common Disabilities You May Encounter

One out of every five people in the United States has a disability. Most fall under the umbrella of "invisible" disabilities, those you would never know about if they weren't disclosed to you. There is a culture to disabilities, and the more you learn, the less likely you or the other person will be uncomfortable. Knowledge is power!
