Whether we live with a disability ourselves, work with someone with a disability, or have a family member or friend who lives with a disability, we will all be touched by disability in our lifetimes. This is all the more true given thatdisability is not a static experience, it's a porous state. Those who live with a disability may go through periods where their disability impacts day-to-day functioning significantly and other periods where the impacts are less pronounced. And people who are "able-bodied" can develop a disability after an accident or illness, or as they age. As disability rights activist Judith Heumann notes, "Disability is a family you can join at any point in your life" (Heumann, 2016).
