  • Hi Sarah, are you ready to speak to our friends about youth and disability?
  • Yes Jim, I am supper ready, lets go.
  • Hi Joy and Ken, so we are here, lets talk about youth and disability.
  • Awesome
  • We're excited to hear about it.
  • Well there is the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) adopted in 2006 but signed by 7 out of 13 United Nations Member States in the sub-region and the Charter of Civil Society for the Caribbean Community, adopted in February 1997.
  • The disabled community accounts for an estimated 10 per cent of the world’s population, or approximately 650 million persons.
  • The term disabled means a condition which may restrict a person’s mental, sensory, or mobility functions to undertake or perform a task in the same way as a person who does not have a disability (Disability Works, 2012).
  • Good stuff
  • There are several types of disability which includes Physical - affects a person’s mobility Intellectual - affects a person’s ability to learn Psychiatric - affects a person’s thinking processes Sensory - affects a person’s ability to hear or see Neurological - results in the loss of some bodily or mental function
  • Really? I never knew that
  • Yes Joy and on the theoretical side, there are three models of disability:The individual disability model locates the ‘problem’ of disability within the individual The social model approaches disability from the perspective of the barriers that disabled people face in accessing amenities and the religious model shows how people’s religious beliefs are sometimes projected onto a person with a disability. For example, people with epilepsy may be viewed by some as being possessed by the devil.
  • wow, what's being done about this?
  • Yes Joy that's about it.
  • Is this all that's being done?
  • Oh my. I suggest we create an advocacy network to champion the cause for youth and disability ..... I am excited to work.
