Journal article

Towards an affirmation model of disability

Authors:
SWAIN John, FRENCH Sally
Journal article citation:
Disability and Society, 15(4), June 2000, pp.569-582.
Publisher:
Taylor and Francis,

Argues that a new model of disability is emerging within the literature by disabled people and within disability culture, expressed most clearly by the Disability Arts Movement. This view has arisen in direct opposition to the dominant personal tragedy model of disability and impairment, and builds on the liberatory imperative of the social model. In this analysis the affirmation model addresses the limitations of the social model through the realisation of positive identity encompassing impairment, as well as disability.

Publisher:
Open University Press
Publication year:
2003
Pagination:
198p.,bibliog.
Place of publication:
Buckingham

Examines the consequences of the social model of disability. From this point of view society is itself at fault, that is a disabling society that is geared to, built for and by, and controlled by non-disabled people. This exclusion of disabled people is created and constructed in every aspect of living including language, thinking, the built environment and power structures and regulations. This model asserts that whether one is disabled or not, one lives within a 'disabling society'.
