Disability Etiquette Brochure
Don’t let fear and uncertainty keep you from getting to know people with disabilities. Fear of the unknown and lack of knowledge about interacting can lead to uneasiness when meeting a person who has a disability.
Remember: a person with a disability is a person with feelings. Treat him or her as you would want to be treated, and then let common sense
and friendship break down any barriers you may encounter.
