description
Persons with disabilities have historically been stigmatized and separated from their non-disabled peers due to negative perceptions and stereotypes of disability. This has been especially true in education where students with disabilities such as Autistic Disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder, and Learning Disorders have been completely removed from an education with their non-disabled peers. Popular culture has also played a role in developing these policies and stereotypes and stigmas of disabled students. This paper (abstract)
