Person-first language webinar: why should you care?

Posted by Reeve Staff in Daily Dose on May 14, 2018 # News, Events

From our friends at the Amputee Coalition:

Person-First Language

The words we use shape our perceptions and can carry meanings we don't intend -- or appreciate. All of us have our own preferences, which may differ, depending on the situation and audience.

Whether you are living with limb loss, someone caring for the community, or a loved one, please join us for a meaningful conversation.

Learn more about:

  • What is person-first language?
  • How does it relate to limb loss and limb difference?
  • What matters to you?
  • How can you talk about what language you choose?
