Resources from the NIDILRR Community for the Spanish-Speaking Disability Community

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (in English), a disability is “any condition of the body or mind that makes it more difficult for the person with the condition to do certain activities and interact with the world around them.” There are many types of disabilities, including sensory, psychiatric, developmental, intellectual, and more. 

People may experience disabilities at any point in their lives. Disabilities may be related to conditions that are present at birth, such as down syndrome or cerebral palsy. They may be become apparent as a child grows, such as autism spectrum disorders. Disabilities may be related to an injury, such as a brain injury or spinal cord injury (SCI). Disabilities may be associated with longstanding conditions, such as diabetes, and may develop as we age, such as vision loss. Finally, disabilities may be progressive, such as muscular dystrophy; static, such as limb loss; or intermittent, such as some forms of multiple sclerosis (MS).

Disabilities occur across language, race, ethnicity, gender, or other demographics. Below, you will find just a few examples of evidence-based consumer products produced by the NIDILRR community for Spanish-speakers with disabilities, their families, and service providers:

Did you know that NARIC has a Spanish-language version of its website?
