Description:
Person 1st Language emphasizes the person, not the disability. By placing the person first, the disability is no longer the primary, defining characteristic of an individual, but one of several aspects of the whole person. People-First Language is an objective way of acknowledging, communicating, and reporting on disabilities. It eliminates generalizations and stereotypes, by focusing on the person rather than the disability. This webex will teach participants about how Person First language can assist in building an environment of recovery.Luciann Stalzer, the NYSOMH Regional Advocacy Specialist for Long Island will be the presenter
