Health has become such an underrated term these days that many people misinterpret it. The major victims of this phenomenon are the disabled people-those who are differently able or in other words those who are special in their own form. The way people treat them can disgust humanity at times, however, it nowhere means that all are mean to them but indeed the ratios favor this psyche. We often come across those people who have a simple thing to say, “I want to help but I don’t know how I can.”
So here are some ways to do your bit to help differently able people.
Many people are scared or even pissed off when a so-called not so normal person is around them. The eyes start judging them from the very first moment. Forget talking some people just walk away from such spots as if disability was a contagious diseases, which is not the case at all. One should communicate with differently abled people normally as they are normal themselves. There is no need to show your pity for them as they all would have seen that a lot. Talk about normal stuff with them. You can even engage them in conversions whereby you can learn about their goals, their desires and give them all the advice you can as it can build confidence and hope in them which would encourage them to push harder.
Well many of us would’ve helped such people at one or other stage of our lives. Small efforts like, helping blind people to cross the road or doing some charity, counts but it fails to make much of a difference on a larger scale. No one is asking you to move mountains but going a little bit out of the way is no Himalayan task. Assisting them financially, emotionally and morally can do wonders. Make sure that you do it out of the moral responsibility you owe to humanity and society and not out of pity for them. You can help them with education or by finding a job for them. You can also google some good health centers for them where they can get professional care.
Everybody is a Genius. But If You Judge a Fish by Its Ability to Climb a Tree, It Will Live Its Whole Life Believing that It is Stupid
This notion often excludes differently abled people. Ironically they relate to it the most. We may help them but deep down we tell ourselves that they are not normal and are good for nothing. Disrespecting them is a routine for some. The spirit with which they live is often a cover up, many would say, but the zeal they have is way more than the normal people. It’s the enthusiasm of theirs which works as their backbone and we all should respect them and their abilities.
Educate one and all:
Firstly the specially-able people should be told about the laws that surround them. Many of them don’t even know their rights. So we should inform them about their rights and the benefits that they can get from the authorities which includes the following categories:
2. Education Laws
3. Health Laws
4. Family Laws
5. Succession laws
6. Labor Laws
7. Judicial Procedures
8. Income Tax Laws
Apart from that, we should educate other folks about the things they should take care of while dealing with differently abled people. Also sharing this wisdom with kids is very important as they have impressionable minds and if seeds of humanitarian attitude are sown in their minds, the world would be a much better place for our gifted pals.
Lastly those of us who can volunteer for any sort of help should do so.
