By promoting an inclusive environment through providing information on appropriate language, etiquette, questions, and more in regard to people with disabilities, we hope to demonstrate just how easy it is to achieve the equality that everyone deserves.
Understanding how to discuss topics involving disabilities, and how to address those with disabilities, is an important part of promoting equality and an inclusive environment. Our language is a strong influencer of how we perceive and feel about things, even when we don’t realize it.
When interacting with a person with a disability, the best guideline is to behave no differently than you would with someone without a disability. Making assumptions about how you can help them or what they can and cannot do may do more harm than good.
