MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Did you know that there are some 785 million people living with a disability in the world? United States alone is home to nearly 20% of adults (1 in 5 people) who have some type of Disability1. Locally in South Florida, the percentages are slightly higher than the national average ranging from 22% to 30%2. Of these individuals with disabilities, 1 in 4 are women and 3 in 10 are non-Hispanic blacks. In addition, 4 in 10 of these adults have not completed high school, and 1 in 3 are unemployed adults with disability3.
The data also shows that when it comes to families, parents of children with ADHD and/or Autism Spectrum Disorder (disabilities often characterized by extreme, inappropriate, and aggressive behaviors), the divorce rates are almost two times (an average 23% vs. 13%) higher than the general and other special needs population.4 As if these statistics weren’t alarming enough, statistics also reveals that children with disabilities are 4 to 10 times more likely to be abused (physically, sexually, emotionally and mentally) than their peers without disabilities5.
