A person who has a physical or mental impairment in which the physically built environment or social enviroment makes the person disabled. It puts them at a disadvantage. If the environment was moulded to their needs, then it would not be much of a disability because they would be able to continue life without much hindrance. Of course other minor things can be a hindrance but other people who don't have any specific impairment have the same things e.g. back pain, periods...sometimes the impairment may make those normals things a little more hard to deal with. Just a little.

any physical or mental condition brought on by birth or accident. Once thought to be limiting, disabled people are still capable of sexual desire, thought, feeling, emotion and all other aspects of humanity. They often can perform extraordinary tasks greater than the average person and are still of value to society.
In the movie Rain Man an autistic young man has the ability to remember cards in any form of gambling. Disabled people can often have extraordinary extrasensory or creative abilities such as Stephen Hawking, Beethoven, Renoir, Shakespeare
