Disabilities can vary. Some are temporary and others permanent. People may be physically disabled after an accident, and require certain support during recovery; others may have a disability that is with them for life. Some disabilities can be stable and others may progress and change over time. Living with a disability can be more of a psychological or physical challenge for some people than others.
