Disability Etiquette

Disability EtiquetteIt happens even to the best of us. A social faux pas that was meant in the best of intentions but really just left us (and lets admit it, probably the people around us) red faced and embarrassed, maybe even utterly mortified. But while we pray in slow and steady incriments during public interactions not to say something embarrassing, we rarely let it stop us from interacting. So why do we stumble, catch ourselves, and sometimes about-face when interacting with persons with a disability. Certainly this isn’t always the case, but it tends to reason that most people thing much longer and harder about their interaction with a person with disabilities before actually interacting than they do in other social situations.

Well, we’re about to make your lives so much easier. See, dear old Emily Post may have skipped writing this chapter in her voluminous encyclopedia of proper etiquette, but the United Spinal Association didn’t. This free downloadable disability etiquette guide is a tiny compendium of all the etiquette rules Emily Post forgot to tell you about.

This publication is also available in Spanish. For more information, guides, resources, and other free publications, visit the United Spinal Association website.
