Disability is the experience of any condition that makes it more difficult for a person to do certain activities or have equitable access within a given society. Disabilities may be cognitive, developmental, intellectual, mental, physical, sensory, or a combination of multiple factors. Disabilities can be present from birth or can be acquired during a person's lifetime. Historically, disabilities have only been recognized based on a narrow set of criteria—however, disabilities are not binary and can be present in unique characteristics depending on the individual. A disability may be readily visible, or invisible in nature.
Handicapped refers to individuals having a condition that significantly restricts their ability to function physically, mentally, or socially. This could involve impairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions. The term is often used in relation to people with disabilities, though some prefer to use other terms due to the negative or limiting connotations associated with the word "handicapped."
