The F-words: Fitness, Function, Friends, Fun, Family and Future

The World Health Organization (WHO)'s International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) Framework describes health and disability. It offers a holistic strengths-based model for describing what people CAN do. The F-words: Fitness, Function, Friends, Fun, Family and Future are embedded into this framework. Families and youth have identified the F-words as a lay-friendly, easy-to-understand way of using ICF concepts.

To share the F-words, and educate the public about what youth with disabilities CAN do, a group of young adults with disabilities created the F-words Video for Youth.
