<p>This paper discusses individual disability experiences based on the stories of mild disabled persons.</p><p>This paper is divided into three parts: first, a presentation on the background of the “mild disabled”; second, a consideration of criticisms of the British social model; and finally, by way of a conclusion, a discussion of the validity of the American social model. Criticisms on the social model were mainly about impairment, but Ryoji Hoshika reexamined disability and introduced a concept called “the concentration of the disadvantage” to monitor the disadvantages that disabled persons suffer.</p><p>As an additional line of inquiry using the Hoshika’s “disadvantageous theory”, this paper considers the stories of mild disabled persons, and analyzes the disability experiences regarding gender roles.</p>
