Person-First, Identity-First, and Just Plain John: Words Matter

Kevin Manuel Video: Amputee Coalition Webinars

Growing up you may have heard “sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me.” However, names matter because they shape our perspective. This Webinar covers the evolution of person-first language as well as feature individuals sharing their own story about using “amputee”, “person with limb loss”, or “disabled”. Whatever you decide, it is your story to shape, and this Webinar will help provide insight and tools to make the language used to describe the limb loss community reflect your choice.
