This paper will discuss how disabled people are treated and today society. Disabled people in today society are not known as other member in society. This is chance to understanding how the disabled people are treated in various areas of their lives and issues are not open to a more border audience. The sociology of disability is an experience of people who have common disabilities and is exclusion, marginalization, and disadvantages. Disability is not always about exclusion, marginalization, and disadvantages. It can also be about a strong sense of identity and accepting who you are no matter what.
