Disability Language & Etiquette

drawing of one person speaking to another, the words are a fist punching the other person.

The language we use is powerful and can reveal hidden assumptions we might not realize we have. Our words can be hurtful even when well-intended. Disability Network is hosting a free webinar for human service professionals designed to allow participants to explore new ideas, ask questions in a safe environment and challenge some assumptions about what it means to live with a disability. Ableism shows up in our social work practice and organizations whether we intend it to or not; this webinar invites area professionals to learn new ways of thinking and talking about disability.

This webinar will be offered at the following times:

  • Wednesday, September 16 | 10:00 AM – 12:00 Noon
  • Tuesday , September 29 | 1:00 – 3:00 PM
