Shahzad Khan Society wants to empower people with disabilities to achieve their human rights through equal participation in different activities of life through easy mobility.
Students with disabilities may experience a range of different mobility impairments that might require accommodations in school or university settings. The mobility impairments can range from ones related to a person's stamina to ones associated with paralysis. Some of the mobility impairments students may experience involve conditions that are present from the time of their birth, while others are the result of physical injury or illness. A student's injuries may cause various types of mobility impairments and involve different areas of the student's spinal column, for example.
Students who experience back disorders might have limitations in their ability to stand, sit, bend, walk, or carry objects such as books or other school-related materials. Examples of back disorders include things such as scoliosis, degenerative disc disease, or herniated disks. Some students have paraplegia; something involving paralysis of their lower extremities that is caused by an injury to their lower back. Students with paraplegia many times use manual wheelchairs and have full use of their arms and hands. Students with quadriplegia experience paralysis of their extremities due to a neck injury, and do not have the use of their arms or hands, many times using power wheelchairs to achieve mobility.
