Prejudice and discrimination based on disability

Welcome to the third lesson of this unit on human rights. In this lesson we will be focusing on prejudice and discrimination based on disability. We will be looking at the case study of screening for Down’s Syndrome which is a controversial topic and links to the topic of abortion. For some people this will be a sensitive topic. If that applies to you, you may want to do the rest of this lesson with a trusted adult nearby who can provide support. Please make sure you have a pen and paper ready, and have cleared a quiet space for you to work in. If you have the TV or music on and can turn it off, please do. If you are not using your mobile phone for the lesson, it is best to put it to one side so you are not distracted by it. You will also need two different coloured pens: black or blue and another coloured pen, such as green or red. Click start when you are ready to think hard!
