18 Summary 1. To be famous people, Self determination and clear goal setting are key factors whether who you are, person with or without disability; 2. Language carries intent how we think about people or things is reflected in language that we use and this translated into action; 3. There is a huge different between attaching a label to another person and choosing how to describe and mane oneself because one action disempowers, the other empowers; 4. Attitude is a root of barriers; 5. Awareness toward Disability rights is very helpful to society to rethink about social services that they should realize to their qualities, their choices and their contribution to human resource development and view persons with disabilities as consumers rather than recipients.; 6. Social Model encourages everyone to review their attitude and understanding to disability and to address what changes they might make towards overcoming the barrier that exclude persons with disabilities form full participation in society.
