How to refer to persons with disabilities?

On a yellow background, a text reads: #FridayBriefing How to refer to persons with disabilities? (Part 1). At the bottom, the logo of Fundación Comparlante.

How do you refer to disability? What are the words you use to name it?

Did you know that the concepts we use could act as obstacles to others?

When we speak incorrectly and refer to a person with a disability using it to mention them, we are creating barriers.

Why? Because in this way we are defining that person based on a characteristic, and the disability does not define the person!

We invite you to reflect upon these concepts and to break down these attitudinal barriers together.
