People First Style Guide

Our style guide, produced in partnership with Ohio Valley Goodwill, is a reference for media professionals and the public on how to use People First Language, which is an accurate and respectful way to refer to people with disabilities. It offers an alphabetical list of standard terms that focus on the person instead of the disability and strives for a balance between clarity and sensitivity. It is not a complete list but a general representation of terms people with disabilities commonly find respectable.
