Video: People First Language Webinar

Parents give tips on how you can talk to community and professional groups about using People First language that is respectful to people with developmental disabilities. This video is open-captioned.

 

 

Four North Carolina parents of children with disabilities are taking action! They want respectful People First language adopted by every organization in their community. With their passion, and equipped with a free booklet from the Council, they have received speaking invitations from a wide variety of groups.

Also recommended is the key reference booklet, "We have not met just yet, but I am your neighbor." Printed copies are available at no charge by request.
