Over the years, perceptions towards disability have varied significantly from one community to another in time to time. Limited literature is available in disability history, concepts and varied models. This situation continues to pose a great challenge to governments, policy makers, other agencies and students of disability studies. In their endeavour to trace the development and formation of policies and perceptions towards persons with disabilities. It is towards this end, this article seeks to present a coherent literature review of disability studies based on existing literature. That influence perceptions and policy matters towards children, women and adults with disabilities.
