Overview

From delayed development to mobility problems, disabilities strike people of all ages, but a large number of disabilities occur at birth or are diagnosed in early childhood. Disabilities offer special challenges in movement, communication, learning, and making friends. Educational and therapeutic programs have grown in the past forty years in order to address the special needs of children with disabilities.

If you are a young adult, there are many ways that you can help children with disabilities, from everyday tasks to regular volunteer work with established organizations. Helping others can get you involved with your community and help you learn how to solve real-life problems. You can even learn new skills and explore new interests. Most of all, helping others with disabilities allows you the opportunity to put your caring into action. Young people can become contributing citizens when they give back to others through helping children with disabilities.
