Encountering People with Disabilities

According to the World Health Organization, about 15 % of the world’s population live with some sort of disability, with approximately 2-4 % having significant difficulties in functional ability. The number of people who live with disabilities is estimated to increase in the future due to the world’s aging population. Many of us find it confusing or even strange to encounter a person with disabilities. We might be afraid of doing something wrong or saying something offensive or unintentionally hurting them. But with a little bit of training and a respectful attitude, you need not worry!
