Information & Advice: Disability Terminology
This informative document provides information and advice on what disability terminology should be used. A great read.
"Using appropriate terminology is purely an expression of respect and understanding. This is vital throughout all areas of athletics so that we can ensure that all disabled people involved in athletics in every area and at every level are respected and valued. It is a common misconception that terminology is always changing, and the phrase ‘political correctness gone mad’ is widely used, but the reasoning behind appropriate terminology has not changed since the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) 1995 was introduced."
