Summary/Abstract: Social workers dealing with people facing food needs, housing needs,care and education. They still deal with people who are in disagreement withcertain rules, and this problem must find a solution, yet also deals with peoplewith disabilities. Social assistance provides opportunities to those in needknowledge and access to social protection specialist. I chose this topic becausepeople with disabilities are more vulnerable than other personae in need andmust know which are their rights, but also employment opportunities insociety.People with disabilities encounter cultural barriers, which hamper theirphysical and social access to various systems of society and limitingopportunities to take part in community life on equal level with the others.They are protected in institutions such as special hospitals, nursing homes,rehabilitation centers for disabled and other specialized institutions, without theright effort and reintegration into society. They were prevented from receivingfull or limited access to equal opportunities in society according to age, sex,material factors, social or cultural measures of social protection requiring theirsupport for their social and professional integration. People with disabilities arehuman beings and their disability is not just an individual problem. In essencethe protection of these persons has led to some concerns about specialeducation, vocational rehabilitation and employment assistance and socialintegration, standardization.
