Introduction

Should We Define Normality? How effectively do communities care for people with special physical and/or intellectual and/or social needs? In your response to the question, refer to at least 2 cultures. Throughout the world disability has appeared to develop into one of the most central issues with an approximation of six hundred and fifty million people having it. Disability is a condition or function judged to be significantly impaired or distorted relative to the usual standard or spectrum of an individual of their group. A difficulty that some governments have faced is the lack of care and needs for the people with special needs like Australia with not adequate time and money being committed.
