Disability, the use of aids and the role of the environment

Australian Institute of Health and Welfare,

Published Literature


The environment has a direct impact on the experience of disability, either as a positive or enabling force, improving the opportunities for people with disabilities to undertake activities and participate in the economic and social world, or a barrier to these pursuits.This report provides a broad-scale picture of the association between disability and the environment in Australia, by providing information on some of the environmental factors important to people with disabilities in Australia. These environmental factors include the use of aids and equipment, support arrangement in educational and workplace settings, access to public transport, assistance with daily activities, and home modifications.
