Morris, 1991: 10) Second, Sally French (1993) wrote about her own experiences as a person with visual impairment, noting that some restrictions on her activity were indeed ‘caused by’ her impairment; that is, they could not be explained wholly by the presence of social barriers, and would remain if all disabling social barriers in society were removed. A third set of criticisms began to be presented by writers who drew on a range of constructionist theoretical perspectives. Thus, Bill Hughes and Kevin Paterson argued that the social modellist desire to leave impairment out of account effectively colluded with medicalised ideas wherein impairment constituted a fixed, pre-social, ‘biological abnormality’: … there is a powerful convergence between biomedicine and the social model of disability with respect to the body.

The disabling ‘social barriers’ in the lives of people with impairments can be identified and challenged because socially created barriers can be dismantled. On a personal level, too, the social model of disability had a transformative effect: It has enabled a vision of ourselves free from constraints of disability (oppression) and provided a direction for our commitment to social change. It has played a central role in promoting disabled people’s individual self worth, collective identity and political organisation.
