Eye-openingReview by Mary
As a healthcare professional, I was aware of the importance of using person-first language. However, it was eye-opening to learn that some disability communities prefer identity-first language, such as the autistic and deaf communities. The videos were humorous yet impactful! I appreciated the tips on how to appropriately interact with individuals with various disabilities. (Posted on 3/6/2018)
