People with disabilities incur significant costs that can prevent them and their families from achieving a decent standard of living. These extra costs have recently attracted interest, and beyond the problems of defining and measuring them, they can first and foremost contribute to a better understanding of the world of disability and, in particular, the relationship between disability and poverty. The first part of this article is devoted to analysing this relationship. Extra costs can also help us design more effective and efficient disability policies. Using an approach based on capabilities and their relation to the standard of living, the second part of the article addresses this issue.
