Abstract

The rights of people with disabilities remain a topic that is frequently mentioned by the media, and the media is often criticised for their lack of sensitivity to this issue. The purpose of this study is to analyse the content of the news on people with disabilities in the newspapers published in Northern Cyprus, in order to determine the trends and frequencies of the news published in the newspapers and to provide data based on written documents for awareness. This research uses a descriptive survey model. In this study, the acquisition and analysis of data were conducted through content analysis from qualitative data. It has been determined that these three major circulation newspapers in Northern Cyprus have included disability and special needs news at a certain rate although it has been reported that the news about disability and special needs is rarely published and the amount of news about disabilities is relatively inadequate.


Keywords: Disabled, special needs, written press, content analysis.
