Researching and Writing About Disability

Disabled people have historically been excluded from public life. Disability has carried a large amount of stigma. These factors affect the way that people have talked about, and how we'll need to research, disability topics. Researchers may need to consider using terms for their searches that are no longer considered appropriate. When it is time to present that research, writers should use language preferred by the disabled community.
