Disability Etiquette

People with disabilities are involved in many areas of their communities. Laws have been created that allow people with disabilities the right to access or get around all the same places you or I can access. You may see or meet someone with a disability at the grocery store, in your school, or playing sports.

The golden rule for interacting with someone who has a disability is the same as interacting with anyone else - treat the person with kindness and respect!

If you haven’t had the chance to know someone who has a disability, you may have some questions about how best to approach and talk to someone with a disability. This true/false quiz can help you make the best choices when meeting someone with a disability.
