Abstract: Disabled people have the same fundamental rights as their fellow citizens of the same age; first and foremost, to enjoy a decent life as normal and full as possible. UNITED NATIONS RESOLUTION, 3447, December, 1975. The world is organized around an assumption that everyone has a range of fundamental abilities. It is short from that assumption to the perception of people with disabilities as being fundamentally different. It is a short step again to the provision of services and patterns of life which confirm that difference.
