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.

It has become evident that Australia has not supported the special needs enough with the majority of the world. Even so, few countries like Japan has put in a effort from the little things like the "Heart Law," to help the disabled peoples families cope with every day life. Australia should put in more effort to help the families struggling with many examples demonstrating that the government wither puts in a little or no effort to maintaining families of the special needs economically while it has been illustrated by the Japanese that they do provide programs targeted to the special needs are.
