Disability – Ability – Extrability
People are used to look to the negative side, on the defects. Disability has a negative connotation which should be avoided or cured. On the opposite to endure physical or psychological limitations and barriers, one must develop new capacities. By creating these new abilities persons with disabilities can even achieve enhanced abilities – extrabilities. Worldwide Congresses for Persons with Disabilities are impressing best practices to transform disabilities into extrabilities and to make them visible to society.
