POSITIVE CARE ENVIROMENTS NOREEN MAKAYIRI Individual with specific needs I would like to focus on an individual with specific needs that is a person with a learning disability. On this essay I would like to discuss in great lengths some factors that can affect such a person especially in a community they are associated with. Firstly would to define what a person with a learning disability is, this is a lifelong disability that affects a person's ability to learn, it has been noted that people with learning disability are not considered in the community yet they are part of it so let me point out a few rights which these people have. Despite the fact that they have a lifelong disability they have all the rights to everything that any other normal citizen has in the community. A lot of times they are treated as cast-always, sidelined and not given any chance to speak out their views and to be taken on board on things they would have suggested. We will note that in 1970 the education act made the right to education, a basic right for every child with a learning disability. ...read more.


These can include things rating from failure to be understood by some people. This might be due to the fact that there is serious communications break down, which eventually leads to frustrations. In the society we are living in there are a lot of people from different backgrounds so it is vital to understand people's culture, their environment, language and beliefs. Some factors like feeling withdrawn can affect them since they are always treated with suspicion and hostility wherever they go. As they have been treated like this they have felt as if they are cast-always and are never amounting to anything in life, i.e. their esteem has basically vanished due to their situation.it`s good news such people have rights and they need to be aware of them and make maximum use of them. The community can easily notice these people since they go to the same locality we are in, hang around public places we always visit so it will be easy to take note of them and visit so it will be easy to take note of them and to attend to their needs. Some media and voluntary organisations can help change people's ideas by using pictures of people with learning disabilities, which shows things they can do like having a job or volunteering. ...read more.


The rights and rules safeguard these kinds of people so they cannot just be left standing alone so to say but will be having the back up of the rules. The facts that these rules are stated with clarity means they have to be precisely followed, these include the rights to talk, freedom of choice, freedom to vote, the right to privacy and confidentiality in a persons life and the right to live etc. the organisation involved has the mandate to make sure all the promises and stipulated rights are followed as they are so that they are not found breaching any regulation clearly stated. Sometimes there is no follow up on things that will be written down so a lot of people do not necessarily implement that which has to be done because sometimes they will feel it is not necessary to do so but if we could have the proper ways to follow in guiding the people with learning disabilities and full support from all the people involved then it will be easy to do the necessary task. Sometimes client's complaints are not dealt with for simple reasons that we might be thinking they are exaggerating things but we have to give them the benefit of doubt sometimes and act promptly to their situations and find out the outcome. ...read more.
