INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY2DRS 411/ Intellectual Disability: Self-Assessment and Reflection guidelinesThe aim of this assessment is to evaluate how well I performed or learntduring the lectures on intellectual disability. The requirement for this topic was that Ihad to regularly attend the lecture classes, check and go through the readings andengage with the peers. The peer engagement could happen during the lectures oronline, by commenting on Flinders learning online and regular posts on weeklydiscussions that were on Flo.Number of comments and regular posting on Flinders learning onlineI have commented few times on Flinders over the weeks that I was taking thecourse. During each week’s discussion, I posted a minimum of one question.Before doing this, I read all the resource material that was related to Flindersand Flo, including power-point notes given by my lecturer. The information that Iwent through during the different weeks gave me new insight and understanding ofintellectual disability. I also got to understand more about myths and stereotypes ofpeople who are intellectual (Slater, 2017). This was done through participating invarious readings and answering comments in Flo discussions.Some researchers have explained that one suffering from cerebral palsy orAutism does not mean that they have an intellectual disability. People with Down’ssyndrome however have intellectual disability. This gave me a clear understanding ofnot clustering people together or making assumptions as each and every person isunique in their own way. I also got to understand that the media has over representedthose with intellectual disability.
