Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    People on Social Security can work as much as they want and keep their benefits.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation

    At one time, 25 states in the U.S. had sterilization laws for people with disabilities.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    At one time, 25 states in the U.S. had sterilization laws for people with disabilities. This means that it was indeed true that there were laws in place in 25 states that allowed for the sterilization of individuals with disabilities. These laws were implemented as a form of eugenics, with the belief that preventing individuals with disabilities from reproducing would improve the genetic quality of the population. However, these laws were later deemed unethical and discriminatory, and were eventually abolished.

    Teenagers with disabilities do not have a higher pregnancy rate than teenagers without disabilities.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Teenagers with disabilities may actually have a higher pregnancy rate compared to teenagers without disabilities. This could be due to a variety of factors, including a lack of comprehensive sex education, limited access to contraceptives, and potential difficulties in making informed decisions about sexual activity. It is important to provide appropriate support and education to all teenagers, regardless of their disabilities, to ensure they have the necessary knowledge and resources to make informed choices about their sexual health.

    What is a Medicaid waiver?

    • A.

      A federal income supplement program funded by general tax revenues (not Social Security taxes). It is designed to help aged, blind, and disabled people, who have little or no income. It provides cash to meet basic needs for food, clothing, and shelter.

    • B.

      Enables states to cover a broad array of home and community-based services for targeted populations as an alternative to institutionalization. They may also include services not covered through the State Plan such as respite care, environmental modifications, or family training.

    • C.

      A state administered program that provides medical care for low-income individuals and their families who fit into an eligibility group recognized by federal and state law.

    Correct Answer
    B. Enables states to cover a broad array of home and community-based services for targeted populations as an alternative to institutionalization. They may also include services not covered through the State Plan such as respite care, environmental modifications, or family training.
    Explanation
    A Medicaid waiver is a program that allows states to provide a variety of home and community-based services to specific populations as an alternative to institutional care. These services can include respite care, environmental modifications, and family training, among others. This enables states to offer a broader range of support to individuals who may not qualify for traditional Medicaid services or who prefer to receive care in a community setting rather than in an institution.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation

    What laws made it illegal for people with disabilities to go out in public?

    • A.

      ADA

    • B.

      Ugly laws

    • C.

      Transportation laws

    Correct Answer
    B. Ugly laws
    Explanation
    Ugly laws were the laws that made it illegal for people with disabilities to go out in public. These laws were enacted in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and were aimed at preventing individuals with disabilities, particularly those with visible physical disabilities, from appearing in public spaces. The laws were discriminatory and dehumanizing, treating people with disabilities as unworthy of being seen in public. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), on the other hand, is a federal law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in various aspects of life, including public accommodations.

    Aktion T4 is a Nazi Eugenics Program focusing on people with disabilities.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Aktion T4 was indeed a Nazi Eugenics Program that targeted people with disabilities. Under this program, thousands of disabled individuals were forcibly sterilized or euthanized in an effort to eliminate what the Nazis considered "undesirable" traits from the population. This program reflected the Nazis' belief in racial purity and their desire to create a society based on their twisted ideology. It is a dark and disturbing chapter in history that serves as a reminder of the atrocities committed during the Nazi regime.
