Disability is part of the natural diversity of humankind. This unit explores the complex and dynamic interrelationships between people who have a disability and the society in which they live. Students learn about the different models and frameworks used in defining disability, and their impact on social structures and policy. The unit examines the mechanisms behind social inclusion and exclusion of people with disability, including structural, environmental, and personal influences, from childhood to old-age. Throughout the unit students practice applying inclusion philosophies such as Universal Design, to optimise inclusion across a range of participation settings (e.g., education, recreation, accommodation, sexuality, and family life). This is a level one unit in the People, Society and Disability major on the Bachelor of Health Sciences program. Students in other courses may study this unit as an elective.
