  • Health Status, Self-esteem and Participation: A Comparison Between Young Adults with Mobility Disability and Those Without Disability in a Nigerian Community

    Hamzat, Talhatu K.; Seyi-Adeyemo, Olubusayo R. (2008)

    Inclusive strategies and bureaucratic organisations in integrated and segregated school systems

    Mattson, Eva Heimdahl (2009)
    The aim of this work has been to study the school situation of students with motor disabilities focusing concepts like integration, segregation, inclusion and self‐reliance.

In response to the challenge, ‘Nothing About Us Without Us’ the ...

    Blindness and the Interactional Emergence of Disability

    Reich, Wendelin (2006)
    By analysing interactions between blind and sighted individuals, this article shows that, under certain circumstances, the process of social interaction can identify blind participants not only as impaired, but also as disabled. When blind individuals interact with sighted strangers, they often need to ensure that the sighted people know about their condition. However, the very act of “communicating the impairment” may portray them as limited, either functionally (e.g. being unable to find on...
