A non-exhaustive list of small ways to incorporate disability into your dnd campaign:
a character that frequently casts silence when they are overwhelmed by auditory stimulus
Magical and non magical prosthetics
Character who has limited mobility casting polymorph/wildshaping to get around when traveling long distances
Use of animal companions as service animals - bonus points for an awakened animal who is also their best friend
Characters with mobility issues who have the telekinetic feat or mage hand or unseen servants to assist them with little tasks
Characters that use sign language or that use spells like rarys telepathic bond to send messages directly into the mind to jump the need for hearing
Nonverbal character using beast bond to connect and communicate needs to service animal/animal companion
Beast sense for a blind character to allow them to see through eyes of animal companion
Character who uses calm emotions on themselves when they feel a meltdown coming on
Character with sleep issues due to anxiety or dysregulation using catnap or sleep spells to help them rest
Character who uses detect thoughts to understand people's intentions because they struggle with understanding weird social rules or sarcasm
Floating disk used as a mobility aid
Healing spells for chronic pain management
A character who sustains themselves on goodberries because they have food texture aversions
A nonverbal person who uses illusions as a visual communication device

DnD npc idea
Npc name: Millie Ravenspire
Role: traveling merchant
Shop name: Millie's Marvelous Bean machine
Concept: Millie is a cheery merchant who carries a machine that dispenses capsules(think of a gumball machine that drops toy capsules) each capsule is bean shaped and acts as a mini bag of holding that holds a random item (items are typically useful though actual beans have been found in the capsules. Items are up to dms discretion). The bean capsules break upon opening.
I drew myself a little treat for my holiday break... my DnD character’s instrument!
It’s a Tlanztahre, a three stringed traditional dark elf instrument that has a deep spiritual significance to them.
Inchunder: (English) a rainy little city of brick and cobblestone. It's residents claim that it rains so much that the streets are always at least an inch under water.
It is here that the land will open up, culling mycelium into the forgotten darkness below. You will find a world in which your soul will become a deep, vibrant pool.
