Remember: person-first!

Teacher's GuideIt never hurts to be reminded about ways to make everyone feel respected and included, so this week’s FREE tool is a refresher on using person-first language. This quick-and-dirty table will give you the low-down on what to say and what not to say when communicating with or about people with disabilities. Everyone benefits when teachers learn to use these simple phrases, so feel free to print an extra copy for the teachers’ lounge too! The table comes from the book, “A Teacher’s Guide to Special Education,” a must-have resource on special education written specifically for general education teachers who work in inclusive classrooms.
