Think of the many names and labels you may have heard to describe persons with disabilities and those that are currently socially acceptable. The changing monikers given to those with disabilities are evidence of the continual negotiation of the society who labels and those who are so labeled to define what disability is and who is disabled. What do these shifting labels suggest about the social construction of disability?Society is inconsistent in its treatment and protection of the rights of individuals with disabilities, creating a situation that contributes to marginalization that can complicate other forms of marginalization and oppression. Consider that being labeled with a disability can be simultaneously something to be fought against because of the stigma it entails and fought for because of the access that it grants to social services that meet basic medical needs, aid economic survival, and improve access to education that society can otherwise deny.By Day 5Post an analysis of the implications of the social construction of disability. Describe how disability can be defined as a social construct. Explain how that relates to the perception of disability. Be specific and draw on examples from the Parker case to illustrate your thoughts. Also, describe the intersection of Stephanie’s mental illness with other characteristics of her identity. Explain how those intersections could serve to further marginalize Stephanie’s place and experiences in society. Finally, explain how such marginalization impacts her ability to make choices, use self-determination, and be an active agent with equitable status in her interactions with other professionals.
InstructionsFor this Critical Thinking Exercise, let’s revisit the Barnes Family Timeline and focus on the years 2003-2005.Review the following scenario and then complete the exercise. Answer all of the requests noted in the scenario; be sure to discuss the brain, learning, and behavior.CTE ScenarioAfter Jimmy’s mom died when he was 4 months old, his dad, David, became overwhelmed with grief. Although he continued to provide housing, food, and water for Samantha, an older adopted sister, and Jimmy, he didn’t interact much with Jimmy. It took David 18 months to find relief from his grief and depression and to regain some sense of purpose in his life so he could engage the children more. However, Jimmy is now a toddler and doesn’t interact with the family, other children, or even animals. Jimmy still isn’t speaking much and his vocabulary is very limited compared to his peers. Additionally, Jimmy doesn’t respond to dad’s punishments or rewards when trying to motivate Jimmy to potty train. Consider how Jimmy’s experiences over the last 18 months contributed to his current functioning. Write your CTE on the events you identify as causal agents, and the development in Jimmy that would be the biological basis for his behavior.RequirementsThe CTE has a specific format you need to follow:The maximum word count is 250, not including citations and reference list.Use APA format for your in-text citation and reference list.Use at least one required reading from this module as a reference.
