This Special Issue will explore the problems faced by older adults with disabilities—both those aging into disabilities and those aging with disabilities. Priority will be given to articles that reflect the voices and concerns of traditionally marginalized populations, as well as those that identify environmental factors (including assistive technology, built environment, policies, and the attitudinal environment) that impact functioning and participation.
