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.

Charcot-Marie-Thooth disease (CMT) causes a deterioration of the peripheral nerves which control sensory information and muscle function in the hands, forearms, lower legs and feet. This can lead to foot bone abnormalities such as high arches and hammer toes, foot drop walking gait, scoliosis (curvature of the spine), muscle cramping, problems with balance and hand function, and the loss of some normal reflexes. Written by members of the CMT support group, this book looks at genetic and medical issues; living with CMT; and practical issues.
