MSNBC hosts Josh Zepps and Ali Velshi discuss the issue of language disability in the media, as well as the prevalence of the term.
They discuss the prevalence and importance of disability accommodations in the mainstream media and how this affects the work force.
“What is disability accommodation?” they ask.
“The concept of disability accommodation is that you’re not just a person who has a disability.
“That’s what is disability.” “
There are people who are just unable to communicate and people who just have a lot of language impairment,” Zepps said.
“That’s what is disability.”
Zepps noted that the word disability has also become synonymous with an “excess of a person’s ability.”
“The word disability is used to describe the fact that someone has a language disability that can be so severe, that they can’t talk about their job, they can only use their words in a certain way, and it can be such that they just can’t even say the word ‘thank you,'” Zepps added.
“So that’s really what’s so problematic about the word.
That’s why it’s so important to say it’s disability accommodation.”
The series also explored a different kind of disability, one that was often overlooked by the mainstream press.
“Disability is a disability,” Zepps said.
The panelists also talked about the fact there are many more disabled people in the world than disabled people, that people with disabilities are often more likely to be disadvantaged in the workplace, and that a lack of disability access to healthcare can be a major factor in a person having an economic crisis.
MSNBC hosts Ali Velsoh and Josh Zeppes discuss the topic of disability in media, including the importance of disabled people using disability accommodations to access healthcare. “
We all have the potential to be very productive members of society, but there are a lot more people who aren’t able to do that because of the fact they have a problem that they cannot communicate with.”
