Something that veteran teachers already know is that the need for a “people first” language when it comes to special needs is of utmost importance. This shift in thinking and referring to people with special needs gives respect to the person that they are and focuses on that as opposed to the disability. People first language is the first step in program planning for families with special needs.
Some examples of people first language:
Say “she uses a wheelchair” instead of “she is confined to a wheelchair.”
Say “child with a disability” instead of “a disabled child.”
