Words I Wheel By

Right now the language of disability is undergoing a paradigm shift. This session will encourage an open dialogue around the language we use to talk about disability and explore how it shapes society's perspective. We don't make the rules when it comes to inclusive language, but we need to have conversations about why it is important to respect the language choices of all people.
