Honest portrayals of disabilities drive popular television show

English
Taylor, Zara Buggs.  1998.  Honest portrayals of disabilities drive popular television show.

by Zara Buggs Taylor

 

På svenska


People with disabilities are often invisible in movies and television shows, or, if visible, depicted in demeaning and stereotypical ways: as powerless, child-like, isolated victims, as bitter, sometimes psychopathic misfits, or as the "super-crip," who overcomes a disability with some extraordinary ability.

Moreover, storylines featuring people with disabilities inevitably resolve with a "cure" rendering the character "whole."

The comunita was founded in the 70s by disabled and non-disabled people as an alternative to accommodation in institutions and the family, because these places often did not allow the emancipation of disabled people in their everyday lives.

15 people live and work in the comunita "Lamezia-Terme", half of which are disabled persons. Many of them are wheelchair users.

Position Papers '99, Attendant Care

English
Physical Disability Council of NSW, Inc..  1999.  Position Papers '99, Attendant Care.

by The Physical Disability Council of NSW Inc., 1999

People with physical disabilities must be provided with a range of personal care and support options that enhances individual empowerment and enables integration and participation in the community.

Attendant/personal care is the assistance received by people with physical disabilities for undertaking the full range of everyday tasks that able-bodied people normally do for themselves. It enables an individual to live independently and to exercise basic rights about lifestyles choice.

A Personal Letter from Belgrade, Serbia - Written during the current NATO bombings in Yugoslavia

War ceases to be an abstract political issue when you have disabled friends caught in the middle whom you can identify with, because you share the same dependencies.

Gordana Rajkov, respected disability activist throughout Europe, dependent on electric wheelchair and personal assistance, lives in Belgrade. We get sporadic reports from and about her situation in Belgrade.

Advice and Testimonial

Published wiith kind permission of www.disabilityworld.org

As an American obsessed with avoiding saturated fats, England was a trial. My wife, Lyndi, and I found mayonnaise and butter in abundance at any restaurant or pub. Thankfully, house trade in an English village had a wheelchair accessible kitchen. For the first time in my life I could easily look into the pots while I cooked. The sink also had clearance for my wheelchair. Everything was at my height.

In September 1997, leaders from Maine State government, business, education, and the non-profit community gathered for the Conference, Maximizing Economic Potential.  They set out to explore how Maine can develop the information technologies the state needs to be globally competitive.

This report is the outcome of that effort.

The Natural Sciences (biological/medical sciences) have a huge impact on society and within societies the biggest impacts are felt among disadvantaged/marginalized group. Among these groups we can count women, disabled people, ethnic minorities and indigenous people to name a few. I will look at the characteristic disability for the rest of the report but most of my reasoning and arguments can be extended to every disadvantaged group.
