About physical disability
Some students with physical disability will walk independently, while others will use mobility aids (for example, ankle supports, crutches or wheelchairs). Some students may need support with completing everyday tasks by themselves. They may need extra time to concentrate, learn and practise new skills.
Students with physical disability have different strengths depending on how they might be affected by the condition. Some students with physical disability have great self-determination skills.
Some students are strong visual learners and are able to process and maintain visual information.
