Using Disability-Inclusive Language



Within this training, we will explore the importance of using Disability-inclusive language in social care for a couple of key reasons:

  • Empowerment and Respect: Our language shapes how people see themselves and others. By using terms that focus on the person first ("person with a disability" instead of "disabled person"), we show respect and acknowledge that a person's disability is just one aspect of their identity. This can empower individuals receiving care, fostering a sense of self-worth and dignity.
  • Breaking Down Barriers: Ableist language, terms that perpetuate negative stereotypes or define people solely by their disability, can create a barrier to care. Inclusive language helps dismantle these barriers and promotes open communication. This is essential for social care workers to build trusting relationships with those they support and understand their needs effectively.

Here's an additional point to consider:

The Social Model of Disability: This model views disability as caused by societal barriers, not the impairment itself. Inclusive language aligns with this perspective by focusing on removing these barriers and ensuring everyone has equal access to care and participation in society.

Ultimately, using disability-inclusive language is about recognising the human being behind the disability and fostering a more inclusive environment in social care.

Need more time?

We recognise that sometimes groups need more time for discussions and group work. This can mean that a two-hour session is just not long enough to explore the curriculum and engage in question and answer sessions. So we are you offering the opportunity to extend the session by an hour to allow your trainees the chance to explore the curriculum fully!
