Language and signage

Language and signage should be person centred and inclusive of everyone, not just for people with a disability, everyone.

Below you will be shown some examples of real-world examples of signage and language. You will be shown some good examples and some bad examples.  Using your own lived experience with disability, you will be asked to answer some questions and provide your thoughts.
