  • Disability/Ability• Looking at the representation of disability in the media it’seasy to identify common stereotypes.1. Exhibition – This is where the media presents people with disabilities as different or unusual.Here disability is something to be viewed and observed; ‘difference’ is highlighted and made aspectacle.2. Sympathy/pity – By far the most common representation in the media. People with disabilitiesare often shown to be deserving of pity when they face difficulties or prejudice.3. Fear – For a long time film makers have used scarring and disability as a short cut for evil.4. Humour – An odd one but it’s definitely there. An extreme case of schadenfreude (pleasure inthe misfortune of others, think about how funny someone else falling over is) this may seempolitically incorrect.5. Admiration – This is where people with disabilities are put in a position of admiration thatdespite their disability they are achieving something.Develop
