Watch Your Mouth!
Building Trust through Language

Live Training Event

Disability, language, and communication are incredibly important to the disability community. We convey narratives and even reveal aspects of how we view disability based on how our words are framed. Learn how to spot harmful language and identify ableist attitudes and historical concepts that inform language choices. Discover strategies to incorporate helpful alternatives to ableist language and make you as equipped as possible to engage with people with disabilities with ease and confidence.

General Format/Who’s it For:

This ONLINE 60-minute training (via video conference) is designed for professionals, small teams, entrepreneurs, and anyone who desires to better communicate with the disability community they work with, market to, and represent.


Participants will be able to:


Define ableism and intersectionality


Understand the difference between person-first language and identity-first language


Identify ableist language


Recognize frameworks behind society’s perceptions of disability and how they shape language


Celebrate how disability communities use language to feel empowered
