In our first edition we have discussed the language of "Disabled people or people with disabilities". As a Disabled Persons Organisation (DPO), HAD goes by the Social Model of Disability, which reflects societies barriers causing people to be disabled. Lack of wheelchair ramps leads to a lack of access to goods and services, likewise the lack of BSL interpreters for a Deaf person, or enablers for the neurodiverse. We feel that this lack of equality must be addressed and lets start with the way we speak. We may have impairments, but we are only disabled by society. If every venue/situation was accessible, there would not be a problem, would there?
