Abstract

The development of people living with some type of disability depends on assistive technologies, their families and in some cases government support. Worldwide, 15% of the population lives with some type of disability. In this context, the different degrees of dependency, derived from the different limitations of functional diversity, as a result of disability, cannot in many cases maintain personal development, since their limitations do not allow them to be independent and require permanent care. What happens to these people and their family? The objective of the research is to identify the sectors in Ecuador in which government subsidies are concentrated and in which type of disability. This research is descriptive in nature and public information from authorized sources was used. Obtaining this information will allow to orient what care this vulnerable population requires for its development, since the different degrees of dependency will condition the evolution in the prevalence of disability at any geographical scale.
