It's not about the disability. It's about the person. In other words, it's not "disabled person," it's "person with a disability." Think PEOPLE FIRST!!!

  1. I get it. You want us to connect with what we have in common and we're all PEOPLE. But isn't it awkward and cumbersome to say "person with a disability?" I mean we don't say "a woman who is African American" or "a man who is from Egypt." Do we? It slows us down to talk like that. Disabled is an adjective. It's factual and descriptive. Don't back away from it.
