Attitude and intellectual disabilities

book

‘Some people in the neighborhood hate him. They never let their children to play with my son. Even if he tries to play with them their parents stop them. Others are kind, and tell me these children are blessings from God’ (Father of a 12 year old boy with intellectual disability in a study[1]

 Attitude towards people with intellectual disabilities (PWID) is mixed and did not follow a particular trend across various studies. PWID are considered to be in need of care always and are not considered to be autonomous individuals and the attitude towards them by the care givers defines their quality of life. History on PWID indicates influence of various psycho-social, biological, religious, and educational factors for the existence of stereotypical attitudes towards them.

Keeping this in mind, the chapter of Mythili Hazarika, Deputy Editor of the Open Journal of Psychiatry & Allied Sciences in the book throws insight about attitude towards people with intellectual disabilities in the earliest centuries to the present context by general public, families and parents, siblings and relatives, attitudes towards their education and inclusion in general classrooms and sexuality , and employers, health professionals and media’s role in the same.[2]
