One major factor that arises Ableism is the influence of society. The interaction among peers, relatives, on media and other forms of communication results to the manipulation of the behaviour and attitude of an individual towards a certain group or other individuals. As this continued throughout the previous centuries, Prejudice have been developed towards people with colour, chosen sexuality and the disabled. As people would perceive the disabled by their disability and not their individuality, they then define them as subordinate and incompetent. Because of this discriminatory practice, the concept of Ableism has been brought to existence.
Another factor that causes Ableism is due to stereotypes.With the acceptance of people without disabilites in society,The acceptance of people with disablilites in society has not been brought to the spotlight and is not considered the norm, therefore this must be fought to be accepted as normal.
