Person-First Language

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

For centuries, the way in which we communicate about people with disabilities has often been driven by professionals, physicians, and others who were not part of the disability community. In recent decades, disability advocates have made the push for person-first language, which recognizes an individual before their disability or diagnosis. This course will provide an in-depth understanding of person-first language, why disability advocates and professionals in disability services prefer person-first language, as well as other ways people with disabilities may choose to identify themselves and the services they receive. This course is appropriate for anyone working with individuals with disabilities or in a disability-service organization.
