"The Social Model of Disability" was created by disabled people themselves. It was primarily a result of society's response to them but also of their experience of the health and welfare which made them feel socially isolated and oppressed. This clearly written and accessible booklet contains practical steps you can take to meet the information needs of most disabled people. This publication will prove essential for all policy and decision makers in education, health and throughout public and private sectors, colleges and universities. Clearly written in plain language and 14 point, this publication covers: what is disability; the medical model of disability; the social model of disability; the social model of disability and its implications for information provision; language - and good practice checklist; and, practical steps you can take to meet the information needs of most disabled people.
