Regarding the checkboxes (or tick boxes, as you call them):

when processing the posted values you have to check for an existence of a value of each checkbox. If the check box was not clicked, the value does not exist in the $_POST array.

if(isset($_POST['disabilities'])) {
    $disabilities = 'Yes';
} else {
    $disabilities = 'No';
}

Hope this helps.
