Kofi Amponsah-Bediako


This article is based on an ongoing research work in Ghana, a developing country. It examines various models of disability based on the works of scholars such as Branson, J and Miller, D (1989); Higgins, P (1992); and Barton, L (1996); and explains the diverse perspectives from which the phenomenon is perceived, embraced, analysed and understood. The paper takes a general view of disability from different viewpoints or perspectives known as models of disability. It, however, focuses on the issue of disability from the general direction of developing countries with special emphasis on Ghana. It brings out various dimensions of the disability challenge in society, discussing possible ways of overcoming these challenges.
