On disabilityIt is important to have a better understating of disability, because definitions have social and global implications for their content, meaning, and responses (Wolbring, 2005). The term disabled has been associated with marginalized or disadvantage groups (Wolbring, 2002; 2008). Some people associate having a disability with having an impairment. The World Health Organization (WHO) in its International Classification of Impairments, Disabilities and Handicaps (ICIDH) states that impairments are "any loss, abnormality or other significant deviation of psychological, physiological, or anatomical structure or function"; whereas disability is a "restriction or lack (resulting from an impairment) of ability to perform an activity in the manner or within the range considered normal for a human being" (WHO,1980) or other significant deviations from a certain generally accepted population standards, which may fluctuate over time. Unfortunately, the term disabled is predominantly used to describe a person who is perceived as having an impairment, intrinsic defect, chronic illness, or disease leading to subnormal functioning and expectation. Thus, most people do not realize that having an impairment, intrinsic defect, impairment, chronic illness or disease does not make people disabled per se
