The social model of disability says that disability is caused by the way society looks upon things, rather than by a person’s impairment or difference. It looks at ways how removing barriers that restrict life choices for people with a disability. When barriers are removed, people with disabilities can be independent and equal in society, with choice and control over their own lives.
The social model of disability says that disability is caused by the way society is organised. The medical model of disability says people are disabled by their impairments or differences.
Under the medical model, these impairments or differences should be 'fixed' or changed by medical and other treatments, even when the impairment or difference does not cause pain or illness.
The medical model looks at what is 'wrong' with the person and not what the person needs. It creates low expectations and leads to people losing independence, choice and control in their own lives
The 'medical model' sees disabled people as the problem. They need to be adapted to fit into the world as it is. If this isn't possible, then they should be shut away in a specialised institution or left alone at home, where only their most basic needs will be met. Usually, the impairment is focused on, rather than the needs of the person.

    The Social Model : The social model of disability sees the issue of "disability" as a socially created problem and a matter of the full integration of individuals into society. In this model, disability is not an attribute of an individual, but rather a complex collection of conditions, many of which are created by the social environment. Hence, the management of the problem requires social action and is the collective responsibility of society at large to make the environmental modifications necessary for the full participation of people with disabilities in all areas of social life. The issue is both cultural and ideological, requiring individual, community, and large-scale social change. From this perspective, equal access for someone with an impairment/disability is a…

    The key components of the social model involve the health of the individual being determined by a broad range of factors; social, environmental, economic as well as biomedical risk factors. The social model aims to reduce inequalities that relate to age, gender, race, culture, ethnicity, socioeconomic status and location and is often seen as the preventative approach.

    People hear the word “disability” and often think of the most obvious types of disabilities: mobility, visual or hearing impairments. However, disability may be physical, mental, be readily observed or unseen; disabilities may result from a variety of causes.The definition of disability is quite problematic and complex. In the American’s with Disabilities Act of 1990, disability is defined as “a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities of such individual; a record of such impairment; or being regarded as having such an impairment.” The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines disability as “the condition of being disabled.” However, disability is a misused title in today’s society. Everyone has a sort of disability; a way of not fitting in; a way of not being “able.”…
