DRAPP The Latest in Disability Research, Advocacy, Policy, and Practice

Download Accessible PDF of Spring 2022 Disability RAPP 

In this issue we look at how the language we use when talking about disability affects the way we see ourselves and each other. Learn how the systemic use of ableist language has cultivated exclusionary policies and how the evolution of language can help us break down barriers to inclusion and foster a sense of dignity for people with disabilities.
