Language Choice

As you are discussing and writing about your group, think carefully about the language you use to describe the group.

When discussing people with disabilities there are two common methods: person-first language and identity-first language.

Person-first language puts the person before their disability status, e.g., person with disability or child with autism.

Identity-first language emphasizes that a person's condition is part of their identity, e.g., disabled person or autistic child.

Many professionals and advocates prefer person-first language; however, some people are more comfortable with identity-first language. When possible, it is always best to ask a person if they have a preference.
