Transcript of ENGAGING DISABLED PEOPLE WITH THE SOCIETY

INTEGRATION OF DISABLED PEOPLE
Lack of education access
Table 1:
The ratio of successful graduation among disabled individuals with respect to gender
FINDINGS FROM TURKEY
A landmark law, a civil rights legislation that prevents discrimination in employment and in other state institutions
(Field and Jette 85)
The normalization model needs to be implemented effectively in Turkey
"The normalization model"
Turkey has its own good examples too...
KOÇ UNIVERSITY
has made significant changes to increase the participation of disabled students in the campus!
RECOMMENDATIONS
obliges companies to hire a few disabled workers
METHODS AND PROCEDURES
CONCLUSIONS:
Both in Turkey and in America, disability is a problem.
-Background Information-
Going to school
Going to work
Going to cinema
Going to lunch
All of these daily activities of life could easily become a problem for disabled people in Turkey.
INTEGRATION OF DISABLED PEOPLE INTO THE SOCIETY IN TURKEY
Rate of disabled people who participate in labor force is
21.7%
(
only one out of five
) (Tufan, Yaman and Arun 839)
INTRODUCTION
Evaluates the conditions both in Turkey and in America
Makes recommendations to avoid discrimination against disabled people
For especially, ministries of environment, development and economy and for great company owners
Barriers that disabled people encounter
The structure in which they are not be able to socialize needs to be changed in Turkey...
First article
: "Disability in Turkey: Suggestions for overcoming current problems"

includes
the rates of successfully graduated disabled people with respect to gender (Table 1)
Second article
: "Determining the problems of disabled employees: a survey conducted in Eskişehir, Turkey

includes
directly responses of disabled people (Table 2)
Not satisfactory ratios!

Table 2:
Type of obstacles disabled people meet in daily life and their distributions
Other Obstacles
The most significant problem is the
attitudes
of other people
"Just because you can get a wheelchair in the building does not necessarily mean that you can still participate"
(Wilson-Kovacs et al. 712)
Some assumptions
high possibility to injure him/her
expense to employ him/her
make employers believe that it is too risky to hire disabled people
(Wilson- Kovacs et al. 706).
The "Quota Method"
The most common method in Turkey
(Yazıcı, Şişman and Kocabaş 291)
has not solved the problem of employment of disabled people
The ratio of disabled people in Turkey is:
12.3%
(
8.5 million

people
) (Tufan 174).

IN AMERICA...
As compared with Turkey, conditions are better in America for disabled people
In America, total rate of people having disability is
12.1% (40 million citizens)
(Field and Jette).


the most common method in the USA
principle of providing opportunities for disabled people's potentialities
(Tufan, Yaman and Arun 841)
Methods that have been used so far need to be revised.
Turkey can learn some lessons from USA.
HOWEVER...
Why would not all these plans spread all over the Turkey?
Structural plan
(policies and procedures)
must be reconsidered
(Tufan, Yaman and Arun 843).
Employers must be encouraged by a law.
Making a TV program about disability
Providing advisers for disabled people
(Tufan, Yaman and Arun 843)
.
Technology must be used in solutions
