Adventure sports and disability are not incompatible. Actually, with adaptations of kit and the help of qualified professionals, people with disabilities can participate in canyoning, skydiving, hiking, rafting or caving in a totally safe manner.
These types of activities present a considerable challenge for people with disabilities and are recognised as an effective way to keep fit and raise self-esteem.
In this article, we will discuss several adventure sports that are accessible to everyone.
A long time has passed since Tod Browning directed his famous film in 1932, “Freaks” which was one of the first films on the big screen to address the subject of disability. Since then, the relationship between disability and film has been prolific with numerous examples of works that address incapacity in all its forms across all genres (biographies, dramas, documentaries, etc.).
They have all, almost always in a positive manner, contributed to increasing the visibility of disabled people.
