PEER DISCUSSION 1: 200 WORDS RESPONSE
Medical model thinking is in liberal term “people with disabilities”, and with this approach people with impairment are sought out as it reduces the complex of problems of disabled people to the issues of medical prevention, cure, or rehabilitation. The weakness in the medical model is the perspective and the guilt that it puts on the person who is disabled. The medical model is the model that the disability is a result of a physical condition and may have clear effects on the quality of life of that individual (County Council, 2021).
The social model has been called “the big idea” of the British disability movement (Hasler, 1993), has been effective politically in building the social movement of disabled people. Social model thinking mandates barrier removal, anti-discrimination legislation, and independent living. Looking at disability in a different way as it seems to allow the person to be more successful. In the social model, the disability is not viewed as the fault of the disabled or as a negative nor positive. Strengths of the social model is that the disability is not viewed negatively and not problematic. As it is stated by Beaudry that social modelists acknowledge that impairments do exist in those with a diagnosis, “they deny that impairments should be called or said to cause disabilities” (2016).
In my opinion the Universal Design would be beneficial in the Medical Model especially because it allows those who have impairments to have opportunities equal to their peers regardless of a disability.

PEER DISCUSSION 2: 200 WORDS RESPONSE
Both the medical and social models of disability have their individual strengths and weaknesses. The social model of disability promotes the idea that adapting social and physical environments to accommodate people with a range of functional abilities improves the quality of life and opportunity for people with and without impairments (UCSF, 2019). In comparison, the medical model of disability views disability as resulting from an individual person’s physical or mental limitations and is not connected to social or geographical environments. Therefore, the Medical Model focuses on finding a “cure” or making a person more “normal.” While the Medical Model is a helpful way of understanding illness and loss of function, it inherently rejects the concept of disability as a disability and typically is rejected by the disability community because of this.
We can see the concepts of these models impact the perception of society and therefore what we consider appropriate solutions when we consider effective accessibility options. For example, if an establishment is accessible exclusively by steps, the medical model would suggest that an individual’s inability to walk prevented them from entering the establishment. Conversely, through the social model of disability, the absence of a ramp prevented the individual from entering the establishment, and it also created unnecessary risks and difficulties for families with strollers or delivery workers with dollies stacked with heavy boxes. The social model of disability in this scenario is great example of why concepts of Universal Design is beneficial to society as a whole and not just disabled individuals.
