Concepts of health are intricately intertwined with concepts of disability. For every function, an opposing lack of function is possible. Whereas it was once simply equated to any pathology of the human body, it now encompasses a complex mix of personal and environmental factors. In order to understand disability and disablement, a multitude of conceptual models have been formulated. These conceptual models can be used not only to define disability, but also to understand the impact of the disability and other factors on function. The models can then be used to quantitatively and qualitatively assess disability and functioning, identify needs so that appropriate resources can be obtained, monitor costs, and direct social policy.
Philosophers have always lived among people who could not see, walk, or hear; who had limited mobility, comprehension or longevity, or chronic illnesses of various sorts. And yet philosophical interest in these conditions was piecemeal and occasional until the past hundred or so years. But the treatment of disability as a subject of philosophical interest is relatively new. The resurgent political philosophy of the second half of the last century, preoccupied with eliminating or reducing unearned disadvantages, tended to treat disability as a primary source of those disadvantages, to be addressed with medical correction or government compensation. Somewhat later, social philosophers began to see disability as a source both of discrimination and oppression, and of group identity, akin to race or sex in these respects. In some ways, disability looks much like sex or race as a philosophical topic. It concerns the classification of people on the basis of observed or inferred characteristics.
The purpose of this article is to launch a new conceptual design tool in rehabilitation engineering, technology, and Disability Studies, useful both as guidance and help for people with disabilities in analyzing their own functional aids, and as inspiration and meta-guidelines for designers. It is non-discriminating and classification-free and differs from a mere classification system like the International Classification of Functioning ICF. The origin of the tool is twofold: experiences of my own disability and of research in rehabilitation engineering. Neither the medical nor the social model of disability is satisfactory for rehabilitation engineering and design. The medical model oversimplifies disability as an individual characteristic and directs attention towards individual adjustments and means.
Models of Disability are tools for defining impairment and, ultimately, for providing a basis upon which government and society can devise strategies for meeting the needs of disabled people. They are often treated with scepticism as it is thought they do not reflect a real world, are often incomplete and encourage narrow thinking, and seldom offer detailed guidance for action. However, they are a useful framework in which to gain an understanding of disability issues, and also of the perspective held by those creating and applying the models. For Models of Disability are essentially devised by people about other people. They provide an insight into the attitudes, conceptions and prejudices of the former and how they impact on the latter.
The social model is generally the preferred model when thinking about disability. The social model has been adopted by most disabled people's organisations. In.
This model only looks at what is wrong with the individual rather than what the individual needs to be able to live a full and rewarding life. This model believes that the problem is with society and the way that it treats individuals with a disability. Yn y model hwn, credir bod yr anabledd yn broblem y mae angen ei datrys, hyd yn oed os nad yw'r unigolyn yn dioddef unrhyw boen neu anghysur. Dim ond ar yr hyn sydd o'i le ar yr unigolyn y mae'r model hwn yn edrych, yn hytrach na'r hyn sydd ei angen ar yr unigolyn i allu byw bywyd cyflawn a llawn boddhad.
For too long people with disabilities have been treated as second-class citizens. They have repeatedly been bombarded by messages that they their bodies are defective, that they need to be fixed or cured, and that their inability to participate fully in society is because of them and their disability. Carol Gill at the Chicago Institute of Disability Research wrote a paper that strove to see how people with disabilities are seen by society, as well as how people with disabilities see themselves.
Я читал электронную почту Танкадо уже в течение двух месяцев. Как ты легко можешь себе представить, я был шокирован, впервые наткнувшись на его письмо Северной Дакоте о не поддающемся взлому коде, именуемом Цифровая крепость. Я полагал, что это невозможно. Но всякий раз, когда я перехватывал очередное сообщение, Танкадо был все более и более убедительным.
Подобно своим природным аналогам они преследуют одну цель - внедриться в организм и начать размножаться. В данном случае организмом является ТРАНСТЕКСТ. Чатрукьяна всегда изумляло, что АНБ никогда прежде не сталкивалось с проблемой вирусов.
