In their words:

“Around 19 per cent* of the population have a disability or health condition. Many of these
will be unseen, such as epilepsy and mental health conditions. This means you might not
realise someone is disabled.

The way you speak about disabilities – your disability etiquette
– demonstrates your, and your organisation’s values. Your language and behaviour can show
that you respect people regardless of their background or ability.

Don’t avoid people with disabilities or health conditions because you are worried about
saying the wrong thing.”
