People with disabilities should be treated the same as all of us, because of the treatment they may have gone through, whether or not it is visible or invisible one, they are still affected dearly by it, and the barriers they face on a daily basis. Throughout history, the treatment of the disabled has been changing for forty to fifty year now, and still now, not one of the ways of treatment has stuck throughout
Even with everything that has happened to show that the disabled are still capable many people still believe that they aren’t able to be independent.Many stigmas are surrounding the disabled community because of this. Those that are a part of the disabled community should be treated with more respect and more acceptance based on the past mistreatments, the stigmas of visible vs invisible disabilities, and the daily struggles they have to go through from the public's ignorance. Throughout history the treatment of those whom are disabled has been terrible, dehumanizing, and inhumane. In the 1800’s, anyone with a disability would be treated as if they were not human. According to http://mn.gov/mnddc/parallels/one/4.html, “In Rome, it was not
She clarifies the difference between deafness and Deafness. Deafness being related to culture and deafness which relates to the ability to hear. It was interesting to read about the dichotomy between Deaf and deaf and how it affects the way Deaf people view disability. The connotation a deaf person holds behind big D and little d Deaf may reflect the way a deaf person views disability. Corker points out that the way a deaf person signs “disabled”, “disability”, and other words related to disability can show their views toward disability.
It is essential to understand where the power goes and when the power is back in the hands of a marginalized group, they have more control over their own lives. Because people with disabilities have been defined by others, it is invigorating for them to have the opportunity to discover language they personally self-identify with. The disability experience is more intricate that many may think because it can be impacted by a multiple of outlooks including the disability itself, the person who it is affecting, socio cultural factors and the immediate
An invisible disability can be defined as a disability that people cannot see immediately or clearly. According to The Disabled World’s Invisible Disability article, “Invisible disability, or hidden disability, is defined as disabilities that are not immediately apparent.” This suggests that disabilities that are not immediately apparent or distinguishable, but are still classified as handicaps are called invisible disabilities. In certain ways, invisible disabilities can come with a set of new problems, like prejudice and the overall non acceptance of society. For example, the website www.disabled-world.com states, “People with some kinds of invisible disabilities, such as chronic pain or some kind of sleep disorder, are often accused of faking or imagining their disabilities.” Though in many cases invisible disabilities cause more pain and difficulty, people are still questionable of the validity of them. Just as the invisibly disabled have to face challenges with how people perceive them, the visibly disabled face them as well.
People with hearing or sight loss can feel excluded from society as an individual, they may not be able to gain employment as the employer may not have the facilities to support the individual. Other people may not recognize the individual as having a disability as you may not be able to see the disability especially if they are deaf. This will lead an individual being treated with less understanding. Often caused by people being ignorant of someone with a sensory loss. This will prevent the individual from being included in society will lead to depression, low self esteem and self worth.
These disorders are intrinsic to the individual, presumed due to Central Nervous System dysfunction and may occur across the life span. Problems in self-regulatory behaviours, social perception and social interactions may exist with Learning Disability but do not by themselves constitute a Learning Disability. Although learning disabilities may occur concomitantly with other handicapping conditions (for example- sensory impairment, mental retardation, serious emotional disturbance) or with extrinsic influences (such as cultural differences, insufficient or inappropriate instruction), they are not the result of those conditions or
Disability refers to the disadvantage or restriction of activity caused by way society is organised which takes little or no account of people who have physical, sensory or mental impairment. As a result such people are excluded and prevented from participating fully on equal terms in mainstream society. There is no universally agreed definition of disability. Historically disability was seen primarily as a medical condition ,with the problem located within the individual. This medical or individual model was challenged by disability activists who conceptualised disability as primarily a social phenomenon.
A person who has a disability should have the same basic rights as everyone else, but this is not the case in today’s society as some individuals are treated unfairly. For example, an individual with an intellectual disability living in residential care who is being abused by the carer. This can be in many different forms some of which can be done physically and emotionally. In this case the client is not receiving their basic human rights and this can leave the individual being vulnerable and afraid, everyone has the right to have a free life that doesn’t involve violence and abuse. This shouldn’t take place just because the individual has a disability they deserve the same rights.
Many children at school are capable of hiding their learning difficulties by steering clear from reading aloud or writing very little (Reid 2013, p13).Not to mention, the Report of the Task force on Dyslexia (2001) states learning difficulties from dyslexia occurs across the lifespan of a person and can vary from mild to severe at different ages (Report of the Task Force on Dyslexia, 2001). It is extremely vital for teachers to be fully aware and trained in the area of dyslexia. Teacher’s use of differentiation in their subjects in the classroom is a strong fundamental in order to meet the needs of a student with a learning difficulty like
