Ending Disrespect toward Individuals by using Person First Language
23 people took a pledge
By taking this pledge we are moving one step closer to ending hateful language and providing those with an intellectual disability the respect they deserve.
What is person first language?
People-First Language emphasizes the person, not the disability. By placing the person first, the disability is no longer the primary, defining characteristic of an individual, but one of several aspects of the whole person. People-First Language is an objective way of acknowledging, communicating, and reporting on disabilities. It eliminates generalizations and stereotypes, by focusing on the person rather than the disability.*
