Written Material

This is an article which discusses the negative effects of politically correct language; that it can end up obscuring a person's condition, that it can conceal the reality of disability, and most importantly it trivialises the argument that appropriate terminology is extremely important in helping to shape attitudes and promote positive imagery. From this, the article also suggests what appropriate terminology should be about. Keyword: Attitudes
