"Disability inclusion means understanding the relationship between the way people function and how they participate in society, and making sure everybody has the same opportunities to participate in every aspect of life to the best of their abilities and desires" (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2020). Disability can be physical, mental, visible, or invisible. It is important to recognize implicit bias when addressing disability because not all people who have a disability show visible signs of their disability.
