Most of the things I learned from this experience was a sense of purpose, cooperation, and expansion of knowledge dealing with the various forms of discrimination, as well as oppression. As the semester passed, I felt like I was finally advancing towards a career field that fits me. The topic/subject made it to my list of fields I may want to pursue when I attend a University, which is another benefit gained from my class. Like many other high school students, my mind ponders on the thought of what I truly want to pursue in college, so this was a huge step for me. Oakland Community College gave me the opportunity to test the waters and depict an idea of what attending a University may be like, so that is to say how much one can really learn from an experience like mine. Another thing I learned was that not everything can be done at the last minute, the way you imagined it should be. There should be an excessive amount of planning and thought that goes into completing certain assignments and projects, I remember staying up on some nights just to complete two to four essays. As guilty as I am, sometimes working under pressure motivates and builds my energy up. There times when I would try to work on the assignments during my break at my job and even start on the outline of my
There are many people in the world that have physical disabilities that are not aware that they have them. Physical disability is very important some people were born with a physical disability. Some people with physical disability lack many things that people without a disability can do and may need assistance. Many people born with a physical or mental disability have to be in a wheel chair. Many people with physical disabilities are physically, verbally, and even sexually abused because they can not stand up for themselves.
One social identity I hold that has profoundly affected my life, and my career as a professional educator, is my invisible disability. Celiac Disease has been an invisible disability that has ruled my life for years. Since developing the autoimmune disorder, it has brought on hypothyroidism, chronic dry eyes, an irritable stomach, and other health concerns. Managing an invisible disability is extremely difficult. Those who physically see me assess my ability as capable; however, internally my body is in a chaotic state of pain and confusion. My invisible disability has caused me to see the world through a different lens, particularly in my development as a professional educator.
One thing that I do not feel like I learned that much about was how “ordinary people” can make a difference. We heard from researchers, journalists, doctors, and many other people who weren’t directly involved in government but I don’t feel also it was expressly addressed how we can participate in this process as students or young adults. Overall, I am very glad I took this class and think it has broadened my understanding of our government and has supplemented my education for the Bridging Disciplines Program. This course fit in well with my certificate in Social Inequality, Health and Policy and will help me in the
Many Social Security disability applicants are denied benefits when they apply, even though they are disabled. Before you apply, consider the advice from a Social Security attorney with Waycaster & Allred, in Dalton, GA. The firm’s attorneys at law know the process and its pitfalls and want you to be aware of them.
The amount of people who live with disabilities is a controversial number. Depending on what law and diagnostic tools used, a person may have a visible disability, or one that may lie beneath the surface of his or her appearance. Some people believe that the term “disability” is merely a label use to hold back, or prescribe helplessness. Meanwhile, individuals who have been properly diagnosed with disabilities struggle to maintain respect and acceptance every day. In plain language, there is a lot of misunderstanding between people with disabilities and those without. It is firstly important to get everyone on the same page regarding the definition of disability.

Some of the knowledge that I gained from this course includes: terminology and ways to refer to individual with disabilities, significant historical events, and the difference between social model of disabilities and medical model. I also learned some common myths and misconception about people with disabilities. In society we were taught that people with disabilities are not full equal to none disable people and they have nothing to offer to society but that was not accurate at all. Throughout human history, people with disabilities experienced discrimination through out the world and they are being viewed inadequate. Understanding the people with disabilities and hearing their voice, made me to reflect a lot through this course and to recheck what I learned from society. Now I can see things differently and I am more conscious about feelings toward them. My approach toward people with disabilities would be more positive and more meaningful. Before this course when I interact someone with disability, my first view was always direct to their disabilities rather than the person but in this class I learned that person should be first then their disabilities, which creates more meaningful interaction both of us. The things that shocked me the most was that their abusers are those are either family members or caregiver, and the most violence
Throughout this course, we directly talked about disabilities and addressed a lot about rhetoric and what appropriate behavior is. I learned a lot through this. I gained comfort discussing the subject and learned from my mistakes when I used disability first language in class.
An “invisible disability” is one in which others cannot immediately see any form of ailment or incapacity. With the assumption that such an individual is not experiencing any sort of limitations, there
Developing the Information Technology department employees is the focus of this project. The Office of Disability Adjudication and Review need to focus on developing its employees especially for its female employees. According to Werth, women who work in a male dominated profession struggles for the same pay and opportunities (Werth, 2011). Moreover, working in the Information Technology department involves lifting heavily equipment, stomping low to fix computer issues, whereas, women would not be so accustomed to placing themselves to accomplish their work duties (Werth, 2001). Additionally, males within the information technology field are paid more than a female performing the same duties along with the same title (Broos, 2005). Furthermore,
As a child growing up I never thought that there would be anything wrong with my life or with my body health wise. But as I got older things took a turn for the worst. I started to lose my hearing at the age of eight. Most kids my age during this time of their life usually do not pay attention to much so my teachers and family brushed it off saying I was just a young mindless kid who was off in my own imagination. But soon enough, things got worse and I finally went in for my first hearing test, and this is where it all started and this is where my story begins.
I can’t believe the class is over; it has been a fast six weeks! It has been an interesting and wide-ranging discussion on aging and disability. The videos that we watched were all interesting and the interviews were a great experience.
This is one of the most interesting classes that I have ever taken. I have always enjoyed my classes when there is more interaction. Not only does it make it more interesting, but I like learning the classmates better also. Some of the projects like the fallout shelter
