The study indicated that a stereotype “the disabled person as a hero” arises from the stories presented on television programs about those who heroically struggle with own disabilities. Stereotype “the disabled person as a threat” occurs due to the fact that the villains in various movies and television shows were portrayed with some obvious physical limitation, such as limp, a hook for a hand, a black patch over the eye. It was also revealed that people with disabilities were presented in movies and television as people who are unable to adjust and who need to be cared for. Some television shows presented ?eoP~ with disabilities as bitter and full of self-pity because they have not yet learned to handte(their trauma or problem.
