Tips For Communicating With A Person With Disabilities

Tips for communicating with a person with developmental disabilities. (York, PA)

 Individuals with disabilities face stigmatizing language use that can be  demeaning. It's important when choosing the words we use to not let a  disability define a person, or allow them to be seen as unequal to  individuals who are able-bodied. Pennsylvania Department of Human Services

Language  is powerful — especially when talking about addiction, mental health,  or disabilities. Stigmatizing language perpetuates negative perceptions,  while "person-first" language focuses on the person, not the disorder. 

Reducing stigma can help people living with a substance use disorder or  behavioral health condition know that they are not alone, resources and  help are available, and they are not limited or defined by a mental  health condition or substance use disorder.
