*PRE ORDER - books will begin to ship by the end of April
Ableism isn't taught in schools.
So no one knows what it looks and sounds like until it is them on the receiving end- and that isn't limited to the Disabled community.
I (Victoria) have compiled these examples and how better to navigate them in an effort to helpfully and kindly show what we can do to be better allies- it's a small thing we can all do every day to be more inclusive from language adjustments to how to approach people with Disabilities in a kinder way.
There is also a medical glossary of *some* of the most common terms, conditions and slang terms used by the community but this is from my own research and perspective so may not be fully exhaustive- which is why we also signpost to other people and places to help you on your ally journey.
A percentage of every sale goes to each of our contributors- so you're not not just helping support us, you are literally supporting a community of people with Disabilities.
Lovely hardback book printed in the UK by Mixam.
