Summary
1. To be famous people, Self determination and clear goal setting are key
factors whether who you are , person with or without disability;
2. Language carries intent how we think about people or things is reflected
in language that we use and this translated into action;
3. There is a huge different between attaching a label to another person and
choosing how to describe and mane oneself because one action disempowers
, the other empowers;
4. Attitude is a root of barriers;
5. Awareness toward Disability rights is very helpful to society to rethink
about social services that they should realize to their qualities , their choices
and their contribution to human resource development and view persons
with disabilities as consumers rather than recipients.;
6. Social Model encourages everyone to review their attitude and
understanding to disability and to address what changes they might make
towards overcoming the barrier that exclude persons with disabilities form
full participation in society.
Why we have to do DET at ESCAP ?
