    Explanation
    The statement "People with disabilities always need help to accomplish everyday activities" is incorrect.

The level of support needed varies greatly depending on the individual and their specific disability.

    Some people who are deaf do not use sign language.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Not all deaf people know sign language, or choose to use sign language interpreters. Some prefer to communicate through lip reading and some prefer sign language. When a person is reading your lips, enunciate clearly, but do not yell or over enunciate your words, as you will distort your lip movements and also look very foolish

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because it is not better to speak with a companion or sign language interpreter rather than directly with the person with a disability. It is important to communicate directly with the person with a disability in order to respect their autonomy and ensure effective communication. Speaking with a companion or sign language interpreter may undermine the person's agency and create a barrier in communication.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    The words “retard” and “crazy” are harmless words.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the words "retard" and "crazy" can be offensive and derogatory when used to describe individuals with intellectual disabilities or mental health conditions. These words perpetuate stigma and can be hurtful to those who are affected by these conditions. It is important to use respectful and inclusive language when referring to others.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    You don’t have to introduce yourself to someone who is blind because they have awesome memories and hearing ability and will remember your voice. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    People who are blind may have excellent memories and hearing abilities, but this does not mean that they will automatically remember someone's voice. Introducing oneself to someone who is blind is still important as it allows them to know who is speaking to them and establishes a connection between the two individuals. Therefore, the statement that one does not have to introduce themselves to someone who is blind because of their memory and hearing abilities is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 12.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Petting a service or guide dog while they are working can distract them from their important tasks. These dogs are trained to focus on their work and any form of interaction or petting can divert their attention, potentially putting their handler's safety at risk. It is crucial to respect their working environment and allow them to perform their duties without any distractions.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Shouting at a person who is deaf will enable them to hear you better.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Shouting at a person who is deaf will not enable them to hear you better because their ability to hear is impaired, not their ability to process sound. Deaf individuals may use sign language, lip reading, or assistive devices like hearing aids or cochlear implants to communicate, but shouting will not improve their hearing.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    People with disabilities want to be respected and have the same opportunities as people without disabilities.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because people with disabilities deserve to be treated with respect and have equal opportunities just like people without disabilities. It is important to promote inclusivity and ensure that individuals with disabilities are not discriminated against or excluded from participating fully in society. Respecting their rights and providing equal opportunities can help create a more inclusive and fair society for everyone.
