In essence, this model focuses more on the negative attributes of people with disabilities. For instance, it highlights that people need caring for, have trouble going out, and things which suggest their disabilities are the problems. Also, non-disabled people decided what kinds of lives people with disabilities should have in terms of, what school they should go to, where they should live, or whether or not they should be employed. As we can see, people with disabilities had little control over their lives according to the medical model approach. In the 1960s, people with disabilities were mostly shut away meaning that there was no real need to make buildings wheelchair accessible.
However, this may lead to mistrust between medical professionals and the disabled individual, leaving the individual feeling abandoned, isolated and let down. The medical model would exclude disabled individuals from mainstream society as they are viewed as vulnerable and ‘at risk’. This gives them limited opportunities to meet new people, develop relationships, have control over their own finances and decisions and leaves them lacking confidence. Social
However, if you ask me who should take the most responsibility of this case, I think it is the backward of medical development; Moreover, the lack of exposure to some diseases. They are the direct reasons caused the illness of the patients like Greg become never

According to King, it is impractical because it slows the process of ending the oppression for all, and it is immoral because it seeks humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding. So, violence destroys community and brotherhood by planting hatred rather than love. The third way based on King is nonviolent resistance. He believes in this way no individual or group need give in to any wrong, nor need anyone resort to violence in order to right a wrong. According to king, this is the method that oppressed people must follow to win against the unjust system while loving the perpetrators of the system.
It looks at ways of removing barriers that restrict life choices for disabled people. When barriers are removed, disabled people can be independent and equal in society, with choice and control over their own lives. Disabled people developed the social model of disability because the traditional medical model did not explain their personal experience of disability or help to develop more inclusive ways of living. 1.3 Outline how each of the models have developed and evolved over time. Social model In the past people with learning disabilities were excluded from social activites and were hidden away.
It is focus on the barriers that disable people have in the social environment. The people’s attitude towards the disabled child or young person.

There should be no excuses for being illiterate; there are so many educational possibilities these days that it shouldn’t be a big deal for someone. Being illiterate in today’s society is a huge disadvantage and the person is also in danger of being taken advantage of. Again I agree with Kozol that being illiterate affects many phases in the person’s life as well as the country that they live
Bureaucracy puts rules ahead of personal whim so that both clients and workers are all treated in the same way. From this impersonal approach comes the commonplace image of the “faceless bureaucrat (J.

This means that clients and workers are not treated in the same way. If other co-workers had to hear the inappropriate conversations and were offended by it, then it means that all employees were not treated in the same
