  • The Language of Disability - IASE – Irish Association of Supported Employment
    disabilities at work often find themselves getting a little bit flustered or uncomfortable when it comes to talking about disability In most cases it emerges that the employer or colleague is simply concerned because they don t want to offend somebody by putting their foot in it or saying the wrong thing This can lead to a type of unintentional discrimination for example I don t know how to ask my employee these questions so I ll just steer clear of the situation altogether This is a common enough situation and job coaches who work with employers and employees in a supported employment setting are skilled and experienced in guiding people in this area This blog will talk a little bit further on about some of the supports available to employers Society is evolving to recognise the right to equality and dignity of everyone including people with disabilities That evolution has involved a constantly changing language around disability because some phrases and words which would have been used quite widely only a few years ago have become outdated because we now know some types of language and phraseology reinforce negative stereotypes This is a good thing but sometimes it s hard to keep up with what s PC and what s not and it s completely fine to admit that Just like when recruiting somebody who isn t disclosing a disability employers want to be able to talk to and ask their employees about their skills abilities challenges training needs strong points and weak points Job coaches understand this and can help employers who are concerned about what type of language and phrases are appropriate and which ones are not Disability Awareness Training is a great resource for management and staff who would like to learn more disability Disability Awareness
