Everyday Jargon

Junk the Jargon

Junk the JargonDo some of the words used in everyday chat about our disabled children and young people make you feel slightly uncomfortable?

Do they help or hinder?  Would you use them with your non-disabled children?

We have put together a list of words and are asking you

  1.  Are you happy using them?
  2. What would you use instead?
  3. Are there any other words that you hear that you would like to add to the list?
