Let’s Talk Language

Words have impact. 

There is currently a lot of debate about what labels to use and which language structures are most enabling; however, when people get lost in debates about labels we forget the basics of how to dialogue. The golden rule applies well: speak about others as you would like others to speak about you. Avoid terms that diminish people, or label them as bring wrong, less than, or incapable. When we celebrate people’s gifts and strengths, disabling practices can be transformed.
