This group also acknowledges the difference in ways that disability is described and discussed. As it pertains to person-first (person with a disability) vs. identity-first (disabled person) language, it is important to this group that it be acknowledged that society plays a heavy role in disabling people, while also avoiding the implication that disability is inherently negative. For this reason, identity first language will be used in our documentation. However, it is important to listen to disabled people when deciding which is appropriate to use in individual contexts.
