Disability Etiquette Booklet: An Essential Resource for Disability Awareness

Written by United Spinal Association on 16 October 2009.

NEW YORK -- The United Spinal Association (www.UnitedSpinal.org) in recognition of Disability Awareness Month, offers a free booklet, "Disability Etiquette", for anyone who wants to interact more effectively with people with disabilities. More than 54 million Americans have disabilities. Practicing disability etiquette is an easy way to make people with disabilities welcome. It also makes good business sense. When supervisors and co-workers use disability etiquette, employees with disabilities feel more comfortable and work more productively.


"Disability Etiquette" covers basic interaction principles as well as detailed information that apply to people with various disabilities including mobility and sensory impairments, developmental and psychiatric disabilities, HIV/AIDS, learning disabilities, Tourette's syndrome and many others.

Paul J. Tobin, president and CEO of United Spinal Association states, "More than 54 million Americans have disabilities. Practicing disability etiquette is an easy way to make people with disabilities welcome. It also makes good business sense. When supervisors and co-workers use disability etiquette, employees with disabilities feel more comfortable and work more productively."

The Disability Etiquette booklet can be downloaded for free from the publications section of www.UnitedSpinal.org and is available in Spanish and English.

United Spinal also offers customized disability etiquette training for companies, organizations and schools. Their experienced staff can plan a full-day or a short lunch-and-learn program. For more information on these programs, call 800-404-2898 or email info@UnitedSpinal.org.
