    I interviewed four people, three without disabilities and the fourth diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and Mobius Syndrome. I asked each of them what disability meant to them.

This could be from birth or caused by some type of accident in life or simply old age. One of the participants stated that it was a condition that would have someone live outside the norms of society. This line of thinking places the definition of disab

But according to the writer William Cannon Hunter the meeting with other cultures often creates a gap between persons.
