Virtual Only: First Person Language Seminar

“Billy’s autistic”…”Billy has a diagnosis of Autism”… Can you hear the difference??
This is an example of Person First Language. As a society we must first acknowledge that people with disabilities are people first, they are not their disability. Person first language recognizes that ALL people have many different characteristics, skills, strengths, challenges and interests; having a disability should not define who you are or the way you are viewed by others.
