Language about People with Disabilities.
Hadley, Robert G.; Brodwin, Martin G.
Journal of Counseling and Development, v67 n3 p147-49 Nov 1988
Reviews a decade of rehabilitation literature which calls attention to imprecise, stereotypical, and devaluing language that is often used to discuss people with disabilities and offers more appropriate alternatives. Brings attention to these issues because professional counselors sometimes commit these language abuses, and counselors of all specialists can expect to see some clients who have disabilities.
