Ableism is the bias, discrimination, or stereotyping based on physical and/or intellectual ability; also includes the spectrum and neuro divergence. Ableism is a pervasive societal attitude and practice that discriminates against individuals with disabilities, perpetuating the belief that people with disabilities are inferior to those without. It manifests in various forms, from subtle prejudices to outright discrimination, limiting the opportunities and access that individuals with disabilities have in different aspects of life, including employment, education, and social participation.

Ableism creates systemic barriers, reinforcing stereotypes and adversely affecting the self-esteem and mental well-being of those affected. Challenging stereotypes, promoting accessibility, and fostering awareness are crucial steps to dismantle ableism and foster a more inclusive and equitable society.
