This site is for you!

d-Ability.org is a place to explore and learn more about life’s possibilities following a disabling injury or illness. We do this by giving you direct links to the websites of people and organisations from across the world - people with a multitude of backgrounds, abilities, skills and experiences to offer.

You will be able to find links to anything from mouth painting to mountain biking, fashion to wheelchair football, ten-pin bowling to international travel. Use these links to get in contact with people, ask questions and learn more about your own abilities and potential from others who have created lifestyle opportunities for themselves following injury or illness.

Whatever your lifestyle and interests, we hope you will find something that offers you new ideas or more quickly reconnects you with the things you love doing.

LONELY PLANET ACCESSIBLE TRAVEL PHRASEBOOK website 
 All travellers will get more out of their trip by being able to speak a few words of the local language, but for people with a disability it’s often vital to be able to explain your particular needs. Since standard phrasebooks are unlikely to contain the language you need to talk about needs around disability we’ve gathered together some disability-specific words and phrases and translated them into as many different languages as we practically could. Although things are slowly changing for the better, there are still plenty of barriers to travel for people with a disability – language doesn’t have to be yet another.

BJOERN ESER & 'THE ACTIVE AMPUTEE' website 
 I am Bjoern Eser, the creator of The Active Amputee. I am a father of three amazing children, a husband to an equally amazing wife, a thankful cancer survivor, an outdoor enthusiast, a passionate development practitioner and a very active above-the-knee amputee.
I have set up The Active Amputee as a resource page from amputees for amputees. It aims to inform, it aims to inspire and it aims to engage. Nothing more and nothing less. It‘s as simple as that.
At the moment The Active Amputee publishes a new post once a week.

RAIDaptive DIVING website 
 The RAIDaptive program was designed to bring the sport of diving to persons with disabilities by adapting the RAID Open Water 20 course to the abilities demonstrated by the diver with disabilities. The RAIDAptive Course is designed to teach individuals with disabilities to become certified divers with the goal of using certified RAIDaptive Dive Buddies to compensate for those skills that they cannot independently perform. The student will be certified according to the following Designations:

Designation 1- The student must be able to perform all skills independently with the exception of Entries and Exits
Designation 2 - The student must be able to perform all skills independently with the exception of Entries, Exits, Emergency Ascents, Maintaining Positive Buoyancy at the surface by oral inflation of the BCD
Designation 3 - The student must be able to breathe continuously and monitor gas supply. The student will require assistance with all other aspects of diving.
To become a certified RAIDaptive Open Water diver, the students need to have basic swimming skills, be comfortable in the water, and should be in a good overall health, have a mature attitude, sound judgement and self-discipline to follow the guidelines that they will be taught for safe diving.
Medical clearance from a registered diving Doctor is also required

JAIMEN HUDSON - 'THE VIEW IS BETTER FROM UP HERE!' website 
 I have always been passionate about the outdoors, as a youth my days were filled with activities like riding dirt bikes, skateboarding, surfing and scuba diving. Learning to dive at age 10 only added to my love of the ocean. In 2008 I had an accident that left me a quadriplegic and in 2014 I became interested in drone photography and videography, although I wasn't sure I would be able to use the remote controller due to my reduced hand function. Since then though I've been lucky to have my work featured in many prominent media outlets and publications and have also won the Western Australia 'Young Achiever Award' in 2018. I hope you enjoy what you see...!
