The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

(Excerpt)

By Mark Haddon (England)

Persons with Asperger’s Syndrome or Autism and persons with disabilities, in general, are often discriminated from members of society may it be in the workplace or in school, they are being bullied and misunderstood. According to Buenaobra (2011), for a long time, Filipinos with disabilities have suffered from discrimination. Their economic, social, and political rights have not been recognized and their access to educational opportunities and government services has been limited. there are still significant barriers that keep them from fully participating in society, including the stigma surrounding a disability and society’s poor understanding of the abilities and aspirations of the disabled people. Often, they face a life that is segregated and debased, and many live in isolation and insecurity

How should persons with special needs be treated, the kind of language one should use when talking about them, as well as the kind of language that is not acceptable? Elaborate using practical scenarios.
