As you may know, I am co-teaching a course at our local university called “Disability and Society.”
This next class we will focus on how language impacts and reflects attitudes and actions. So, I thought I would ask you, blog readers, for your wisdom and input!
What would you tell a student about how language, such as “retard”, “spaz”, etc., affects you and your family or loved one?
I would love to share some actual quotes (w/o names) with the students. No right or wrong answers….just your opinions!
Thanks for your help!
