People of Determination


Federal Law No. 29 of 2006 Concerning the Rights of People with Disabilities, as amended with federal law No. 14 of 2009 (the law) protects the rights of people of determination and guarantees them the right to live with dignity.
The law defines a person with special needs as someone suffering from a temporary or permanent, full or partial deficiency or infirmity in his physical, sensory, mental, communication, educational or psychological abilities to an extent that limits his possibility of performing the ordinary requirements as people without special needs.

Dealing with People of Determination

Ways to Make Them Feel at Ease with You

  • Speak in your natural voice when greeting them with determination in. Don’t raise your voice unnecessarily.
  • Refer them to the right room that’s easily accessed. If you don’t have an easily accessed room, provide alternatives.
  • Shake hands with people of determination, even if they have a prosthetic hand. You can use shake with your left hand, keeping culture sensitivity in mind. 
  • With those who cannot shake hands, lightly touch their shoulder or arm to welcome them.
  • Avoid patting the head or shoulder of those using a wheelchair.
  • When talking to someone on a wheelchair, do not tilt towards them as the chair is considered part of their private space.
