Physical disability

A physical disability is characterized by a limitation of a person’s ability to hear, see, speak or move. A physical disability may be present at birth or occur at any time during a person’s life. Such a disability is permanent and prevents the affected person from performing daily activities or to fully exercise their roles as citizens.
