The world is transferring towards advancement in every career. Yet when we search in the instructions of societies, it truly feels as if some factor is still losing out on. Cash money, power, need, etc., is the desire for every human being to attain. Yet we can not refute this fact that everyone are bounded with great deals of social concerns, which are difficult nuts to divide. The important component of success in addition to self- satisfaction is losing out on in a great deal of the societies. Social issues are concerns which right or indirectly effect great deals of or all individuals of a society in addition to are considered to be concerns, disputes linked to moral well worths, or both. Social issues contain difficulty, physical violence, air contamination, fascism, illiteracy, corruption, bribery, decreases of civil liberties, discrimination, in addition to crime, young person abuse, rape, dowry system, abortion, sex, etc.
Out of great deals of social concerns, I truly feel that the constitutionals rights of Superior people are frequently being neglected by each. No one desires to hear them. No body desires to give appropriate love in addition to therapy. They are being denied from a great deal of the societies. As an outcome of the ill- practices of people, they are managing lots of trouble to find their capabilities in addition to creative imagination. Presently, the minute has really obtained below, when we call for to re-think worrying our state of minds towards them. High talks from the federal government authorities that distinct needs people will absolutely be supplied opportunities were maintained back by the previous federal government in addition to still they are weeping for their constitutionals rights to be supplied.
I did my research study for 7 years at Aga Khan Social Health Board for Exceptional People Board. I joined this institute in addition to acquainted worrying their feelings in addition to sensations. I in the future investigated great deals of magazines in addition to met great deals of children of “Borderline Category” of different establishments in Karachi. The informing fact was bitter. I recognized that they were definitely burglarized from our society in addition to were considered as an insane, which is unreal.
I assume, no one has right to define any type of type of human in their actual own presumption, till in addition to unless, he/she comprehends himself/herself deeply in addition to totally. Yet it refers despairty in Pakistan, that Remarkable Child are considered as a numerous being. People are trying to give their extremely own definitions worrying them without recognizing the appropriate analysis of human. Human are copying a pet dog in addition to exposing lack of trouble towards them.
Enable us try to understand, that exceptional people are?
Those people that have KNOWLEDGE ranking which differ from the mean by 2 or perhaps extra standard variances are called Superior people. Psychologically obstructed are specified as those people that have rankings 2 or perhaps extra standard variances listed here the mean. While the people having ranking 2 or perhaps extra standard variances over the mean are called skilled people.
Teams in respect of KNOWLEDGE are as comply with:
o 70 over Border Line (enlightened in addition to affordable)
o 70-50 Modest (educable)
o 50-35 Modest (trainable)
o 35-20 Extreme (miniman capabilities)
o 20-0 Profound (custodial therapy)
For this reason we can specify that,
“Exceptional children are those, who lacks either motor, cognitive, language, social and emotional, or self-help skill development.”
Picture by yourself remaining in Japan with the Japanese students connecting simply in Japanese. Precisely exactly how will you truly feel? After that, you will absolutely be called as a disable person that can not speak or understand their language. Yet this is considered by you as a normal action, because of the truth that you comprehend you are normal. If that is true, afterwards simply exactly how may a great deal of us announce different other mental without reviewing their capabilities in addition to distinct capabilities, which God has really provided them.
What handicap is every little thing concerning?
“Disability” indicates the lack of capacity to accomplish a job in a manner that is considered to be normal.”
“A disability is the expression of a physical or mental limitation in a social context- the area in between a person’s capabilities in addition to the requirements of the setup.”
(Pope and Tarlov, 1991 )
A person with disabilities means who, on account of injury, disease, or congenital deformity, is handicapped in undertaking any gainful profession or employment, and includes persons who are visually impaired as well. In short, Exceptional people are those, who either lacks one of the areas of development.
“Disability explains the impact of handicap upon the performances or jobs often accepted as the basic elements of everyday living. Disability can be utilized when a handicap, relatively defined, comprises a barrier to activity, property programs or the occupational in addition to might be communicational capabilities.”
According to the social model,
“Disability is the outcome of the interaction of specific in addition to their setup in addition to for this reason is neither specific neither establishing information”.
Remember that physically disabled, blind/partially sighted, hearing impaired, autism, speech impairment, learning disabled, mild, moderate, severe, profound, borderline, etc., are some of the main categories of the Exceptional people out of many others. Persons with Exceptionality are mostly unseen, unheard and uncounted persons in Pakistan. They are the most marginalized group. Persons with special needs face overwhelming barriers in education, skills development and daily life.
The United Nations estimates that some 600 million people worldwide have a disability and that the vast majority of Exceptional people live in low and middle income countries. The proportion of Exceptional people in Pakistan as per census 1998 is 2.49 percent of total population, which is quite diverse from the estimates of World Bank, UN and WHO.
These children have equal right to freedom of expression, quality education and have access to a safe and healthy environment; in accordance with the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, 1973; to have full rights and obligations as citizens as confirmed in; the UN Declaration of Human Rights, 1948, on Education for All (1990), UN Standard Rules on Equalization of Opportunities of Persons with Exceptionality (1993), Salamnca Statement and Framework for Actions (1994), Dakar Framework for Action (2000), UN Millennium Development Goals (2001) and the National Policy for Persons With Disabilities (2002) guarantee the rights of all children, both with and without disabilities, to obtain quality education adapted to their individuals needs, abilities and aspirations and full equal participation in all other aspects of life such as participating in decisions and casting votes, etc.
But these claims proved to be false, when disable people raised their voice through media that how brutally they are being treated in Pakistani society.
Example: to attain quality education is the right for every disable, but still, no schools, colleges and universities have been setup by the government to cater their needs. Thanks to the private NGOs, who took an initiative and established few schools for the students with special needs.
The issue of Exceptionality is gaining more and more importance all over the world as well as in Pakistan. Due the movement for a rights based society initiated by many national organizations, World Bank and other donor agencies have included this issue in their mandates. Governments haves framed various policies including reservation jobs, concession facilities in traveling, special training institutions etc. But the question is, if these mandates were made, when it will be implemented, and who will implement it? No concession is being granted to any disable in Pakistan so far in any of the commodity, nor there is an institute, where they could learn skills free of cost. NGOs have set up institutions, which takes loads of money from the parents to support their child.
It has ratified several international conventions, promulgated the National Policy in 2002, begun revising the ordinance on employment which would raise the employment quota to two percent to ensure more job opportunities, and initiatives to develop “Inclusive Education And Learning As Well As Discovering”. But so far, no initiatives have been taken by any of the government.
An infrastructure for Inclusive Education and Training was established in Pakistan in the 1980s which far exceeds that of most of the developing countries. However, despite these efforts, the sad fact is that most people with disabilities and their families remain completely un-served by government – and even NGO resources. There is dire need of more accurate data and research on causes, prevention, and curative efforts to understand the social and economic realities and possibilities with regards to disability.
The major barrier to employment and other socio economic benefits for persons with Exceptionality in our society continues to be attitudinal barriers; stereotypical thinking and assumption about what people with disabilities can and can’t do. The truth is that, the range of abilities of persons within any Exceptional group is enormous. We need to get rid of our stereotypical images and view each “exclusive” as just that “a personal”.
Only limited categories of disabilities (physical disabilities such as amputations, foot and leg deformities, visual and hearing impairments) have been surveyed nationwide and most of the data has not been categorized by gender. Therefore, quantitative, nationwide, disaggregated data, by gender and age, is required for comprehensive policymaking and an assessment of progress. In Pakistan, there is only the ministry, responsible for social welfare and special education, which touch upon person with Exceptional issues. Moreover, Pakistani’s believe that persons with Exceptionality are a social burden and a curse on the family. These beliefs lead to the misunderstanding of disability. They prevent people from obtaining appropriate information and being educated. Employment opportunities for them are very limited and so they are a financial burden for their families.
Like us, Exceptional people are also bounded with some common problems, which they face in their day to day life.
Some of the problems of exceptional people are
o Anxiety withdrawal;
o Fear and Phobias;
o Eating disorders;
o Movement problems;
o Suicidal Behavior;
o Difficult Temperament;
o Conduct Disorder;
o Obsessions and Compulsions;
o Reluctant Speech;
o Elimination Disorder;
o Unresponsiveness to Suicidal Stimuli;
o Self Injury, etc.
Persons with disabilities face multiple social, economic, physical and political problems, which hampers their freedom of movement in society. These barriers include stigmatization and a misunderstanding of the abilities and aspirations of persons with disabilities. There is also a pronounced lack of informational data, rules and regulations, rehabilitation centers, and main streaming and specialized services for persons with Exceptionalities.
The major community problem for which I have contributed my efforts is for “THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF UNIQUE PEOPLE”. I have worked as a teacher/counselor/trainer of Exceptional People for 7 years. Since my childhood, I had an intention to social work for the Exceptional people, because I had a natural bond of attachment with them.
I dealt with all types of student of Profound, Severe, Moderate and Mild category. But I especially worked with “Borderline” students, that want their constitutionals rights; that are managing substantial difficulty in every society in addition to in every location; that needs their creative imagination to find prior to others; that awaits for the love from others in addition to needs different other to authorize them as a Normal Being.
I assume that everyone can make a difference. I claim many thanks to God that these fantastic students trusted me, provided me the bond of collaboration in addition to accepted me whole-heartedly throughout my extremely initial year of Volunteer Option. They shared each of their concerns with me in addition to I claim many thanks to God for giving me the distinct power for being accepted by them. I have really heard their voices, their shivered pleadings, their desires, their presumptions. Yet still, they call for each in the society to hear them, to care them in addition to to appreciate them. While profiting their CIVIL LIBERTIES, I furthermore took care of great deals of difficulties in our society.
I can refrain from doing every factor alone, nevertheless a minimum of, I have really brought a little adjustment in their lives, which is a huge advantage for me. The concerns, which call for to be worked out totally, may simply be viable, if the societies will absolutely join their hands with each various other.
