OCT 20, 2016 "Should we communicate differently with people with disabilities"

After the discussion we walked away with the following talking points:

  1. We all maybe classified as having a disability in one form or another, however it is important to be mindful of the words we choose when communicating with others. 
  2. We have to cleanse ourselves of inappropriate words when speaking with others and always be mindful of our audiences.
