Transcript of People with Disability Satisfaction of Needs

What does SHESEA stand for?

Sense of Identity
Depending on the severity and type of disability, individuals will experience varying levels of health and wellbeing.

Some individuals are able to care for themselves or complete day-to-day tasks with the help of family and friends. Others may require the ongoing support of health care professionals.
Further health risks
Depending on the level of physical or mental disability, the education of an individual can be affected.

School aged individuals with a disability are supported by the education system to provide for their special learning needs. The NSW Department of Communities caters for the needs of student with disability by identifying and assessing the disability and discussing and negotiating the best option for the student.

What are some of the facilities/services that promotes inclusivity for people with disabilities in terms of education?
Often a lot of the barriers for people with some form of disability are not their own physical limitations but rather the attitude of those around them.

Having a disability does not make an individual incapable of attaining any of these things.
People with Disability Satisfaction of Needs
Individuals with a disability can often experience a lack of sense of identity. They may compare themselves to non-disabled individuals and concetrate on the experiences they are unable to encounter and the lifestyle they will never have. It is important for famiies, carers and friends to promote the sense of identity of disabled individuals by challenging negative beliefs and distressed emotions.

Often people with disabilities gain a strong sense of identity through their involvement in charity and fund raising activities that benefit the disabled community.
Some are also proud of their involvement in activities such as the Paralympics, allowing them to be active and valuable members of society.
In some cases, having a disability may be a predisposition for other health concerns at a higher rate than non-disabled people.

for example, a person confined to their bed may develop acute problems such as pressure ulcers and respiratory tract infections due to being sedentary.
