Disability and community attitudes: A process of change

Written Material
Download

Jitka Jilich, an educator, discusses the fact that for people who have disabilities their community seems to be restricted to those people who are some way personally involved in their care. She cites author Donald Schon, who in 1971 examined the process of new initiatives in the community becoming 'good currency' or seen as 'marginal good currency'. Jilich says that it takes time for new ideas and initiatives to gain the status of 'good currency' and gives examples. The article also shows that ideas which were once thought of as 'good currency' are now out of favour. Keyword: Attitudes
