Unit 26 Caring for Individual with Additional Needs P3. Explain barriers which may be experienced by individuals with additional needs. In this task I am going to explain the barriers that are experienced by individuals with additional needs in their every day life. Individuals with disabilities are often treated as less human than those who do not have a disability such as people at school or colleges insulting and bullying disabled people because they are unable to do things like participating in the sports if they are the wheel chair users, or they may be bullied because they behave and understand things differently from everyone else. They can also be discriminated against by people overwhelming them too much.
This results in extreme and inaccurate views of the activities of young people, that often relies upon scare tactics and the over exaggeration of rare news stories in order to make such activities seem worse than they are. This leads to youth being constructed as folk devils, which occurs after the resulting moral panics. Examples of this include the mods and rockers of the 1960s. Although relatively few youths identified as either of these labels, as the media pushed the story of the 'war between mods and rockers' onto the public, this in turn led to more youths choosing to identify as a mod or rocker. This is known as the deviancy amplification spiral, in which the media makes a relatively small problem much worse, thus presenting young people as a problem group.
The presence of others affects our behaviors through influence. Peer pressure being the best example of this. Through peer pressure our peers influence us by encouraging use to change our attitudes, behaviors, and beliefs in order for us to conform to the group norm. A person who is influenced by peer pressure may not want to actually be a part of the groups or associate with them and as such change their behavior accordingly to the group behavior when around that group. A person may change his or her attitudes and behaviors when around social groups in order to feel accepted even if they don’t particularly believe in the group behaviors.
Sometimes it can cause a person to lose their sense of purpose in this world and forgetting that God put us all here for a reason. Some people also tend to believe that if you don’t fit in with society that you are not “normal”, the crazy thing is some people are built to not fit in, and we as people have to learn to accept that. Both of these stories ended in misfortune. The society that surrounds you can cause you to blind yourself with the need to fit in which can and will cause an identity issue, but we have to figure is do we have more Evil in us than
McElroy confirms this by stating that “society is brutal to those who are different.” Without speaking would be hard for Gauvin to make friends when conversation is hard for him to communicate with other kids and understand them. Sign language is a type of communication that not many young children are exposed to; therefore, sign language is strange to them when someone, such as a deaf person, uses sign to try to communicate with them. This could expose their son to be made fun of by his fellow classmates and possibly bullied and later on become isolated by them as well, and growing up all kids want to be accepted by their classmates. No one ever wants to be the outcast of any social
For example, this could be single mother, youth, asylum seekers, etc. “More moral panics will be generated and other, as yet nameless, folk devils will be created. This is because our society as present structured will continue to generate problems for some of its members, and the condemn whatever solution these groups find” (Conhen 1987:204). That’s mean moral panics are still generating by today’s folk devil. This folk devil could influence to the youth culture, values, attitudes and behavior in the society.
They have the ability to make their own decision through deliberate thinking. Yet, the presence of both social and authority pressure can sometimes lead a person’s mind astray. Human’s tendency to conform with their environment often gives submission to unreasonable idea; ridiculing their own conscience. In the article “The perils of obedience”, written by Stanley Milgram, it states that “obedience is a deeply ingrained behavior tendency.... [which is] overriding training in ethics, sympathy and moral conduct.” My experience above portrays a glimpse of social pressures in our everyday lives. If I were to succumb myself to the conformity of the group, I would probably be smoking now.
)—How is one supposed to feel when the media has pigeonholed their culture/religion? As if they are in a dichotomy, the constant struggle for many doesn’t seem to end. With the identity crisis many experience in adolescents, the added pressure to live in a society that puts your religion constantly in a negative spotlight adds to insecurity, self-doubt, identity confusion, and feeling like they are not viewed as “true”
I take her comments to heart as a personal attack that I’m either not feeding them enough or that I’m spoiling them too much. I feel it has a lot to do with my low self esteem on my part when it comes to being a parent or on any other topic that I feel insecure about. For others it can be that they are generally defensive all of the time and perceive negative judgments in anything said to them instead of on separate issues. Responding defensively happens when you have a bad perception of the person’s message; you perceived the person doesn’t like/ respect/ trust you and expresses it in their communication. (4) The downfall of responding defensively all of the time though may discourage others from being so honest with their remarks.
Reflection Paper 2 Reflecting back on many of the readings, I sensed an underlying fear associated with “doing gender.” At times this fear was associated with going against the cultural gender norm or the fear of not fitting in to one’s own gender stereotype as viewed by others. Seeded within this fear were complex emotions involving the inner desire to challenge cultural norms and stereotypes. Our authors’ state that, “Our behavior in almost all situations is framed within our knowledge of ideal gender” (p 159). As our country becomes culturally diverse, this becomes a problem as not all cultures fit into our values and expectations, especially as related to masculinity and femininity. We have learned to ‘do gender’ throughout our growing lives in school, at home, and through the media.
