Welcome to Thisabled.com

Thisabled.com was started almost 10 years ago with a simple belief that individuals with disabilities are contributing members of society. Almost 10 years later, we have not changed our philosophy, however, we have grown to embrace the diversity and power of this community. According to the United Nations, Around 10 per cent of the world's population, or 650 million people, live with a disability. They are the world's largest minority. Here in the United States alone there are over 55 million people with disabilities. Their stories are of importance and significance to us, to their families and friends, and to the world. We continue to believe that through empowerment and societal acceptance there is no place someone with a disability can't go.
