TITLE: The impact of disability is unique for each individual, and the NZDS New Zealand Disability Strategy is a collective response to minimise this:
This essay will discuss aspects of how people with disabilities are affected and how a disability impacts on a person as an individual, and how the uniqueness of a disability can make an individual feel excluded from participating in activities, if any limitations are apparent of performing the same activities other people.
