They place disability at the core of their identity in order to ‘reclaim the body’ from the models that diminish the value of people with physical disabilities. as a valued concept in identity formation has largely been the result in the shift from the medical to a social discourse on disability[ Peters and Chimedza 2000, pp. 248]. Some individuals (youth with disabilities)assert outright pride in their disability. This can be explained by emulating it with the phrase "black is beautiful".
Art is the creative side of the mind releasing into a physical object that can inspire people and even its creator in ways that nothing else can. Therefore, creativity is to be used to fascinate others and bring others into the artist’s thoughts, patterns, and world. Alaina Fisher stands by this ideology by seeking to fulfill it within her works. Alaina Fisher seeks to bring fantasy into real life situations. Creativity is not something to be bottled up selfishly but to be expressed and shared with others.
Why should people with disabilities be included in theatre? Disability theatre can give multiple opportunities to people with disabilities. It is not just about combating exclusion, but also to increase one’s creativity, making new friends, discover new talents and build one’s confidence and self-esteem. Enhancing such skills will give people with disabilities the opportunity to increase their independence and self-advocacy.
In the essay, “On Being a Cripple,” Nancy Mairs uses humorous diction and a positive tone to educate people about life as a cripple and struggles of people with disabilities. She does this to show how hard it is to be disabled and how it differs from the life of someone without a disability. She talks about the struggles and the fears that disabled people must deal with on a daily basis. Mairs use of rhetoric creates a strong sense of connection and understanding for the reader. Nancy Mairs is successful in using detailed imagery, diction, and tone to educate her readers about the difficulties of living with a disability.
If the goal of an author is to establish a relationship between reader and character in order to enhance a reader’s knowledge of a certain topic, then, creating sympathetic characters with whom readers connect is not only vital but also mandatory. Authors use various devices in order to create compassionate characters. A sympathetic character is employed to compel the reader to acknowledge the situational and emotional hardships and enhances the reader’s compassion. In addition to sympathy, readers often feel empathetic towards characters, which means that they not only acknowledge the characters struggle, but also have a personal understanding of the character’s struggle. These characters evince an emotional response from the reader.
Performance art, whether it is in the form of theatre performance, dance, or music, can teach a lesson or spark the imagination of an audience. Moral and/or ethical messages can impact a production and drive home the philosophy of a particular race or culture. Without performance art, many individuals of differing races or ethnicities would not have the opportunity to educate other ethnic groups about their culture nor would others be educated on the diverse heritages, struggles, or contributions of other racial groups. Thankfully, knowledge gained from performance art, past and present, has been discovered and rediscovered all the time, hopefully pushing society towards an understanding and acceptance of differing races or ethnicities. Specifically,
Artwork is a form of self-expression from an artist based on life experience, or on something that the artist feels strongly about (Berenson, 87). The product of art can help others with similar experiences but not able to express the same feeling themselves. From the product of art, people can start drawing excitement, purpose as well as encouragement about the real thing being expressed. Through a piece of art, the artist can communicate a purpose, an emotion or an idea in their work. In this research paper, I compare two pieces of artwork; Madonna and child with the saints by Giovanni Bellini and Madonna and child with the two angels done by Fra Filippo Lippi.
Every writer and speaker has a goal, that has been created by something they have gone through, and wish to share with others.

What then is the essence of inclusion? According to Miller and Katz (2002) who describe inclusion as: “.. a sense of belonging: feeling respected, valued for who you are; feeling a level of supportive energy and commitment from others so that you can do your best.” In the Young Offenders, it was disappointing to see that the same old rhetoric of portraying people with disabilities as evil and sinister. In addition, the language used continues to normalise these very perceptions.
Zac, believe He could make a difference by sharing his successful strategies and encourages people to “act, belong and commit” to support people struggling with mental health.
Bias and the Law relates to my goals as an educator because it will help me gain a better perspective on which people with disabilities and special education are viewed in society. It also helped me realize why people believe special education can be too costly, burdensome, and infective.

Cultural Attitudes relates to my goals as an educator because knowledge on a family cultural beliefs can help me work with students with disabilities and their families on an individualized education plan that best suits their needs.

Counseling is needed because you need to open up about your feelings and emotions. Expressing yourself can be hard but it is easier when you know the person is willing to listen to you and offer you the best advice possible to help you with your problems.

Aside from counseling, treatment centers have so much more to offer.
I 'm not sure if this site is outdated, but I would say it sure could use some serious updating.
