Anti-Ableist Glossary of Disability Terms
The Anti-Ableist Glossary of Disability Terms uses a Disability Justice framework to define terms in English and Spanish related to disability and accessibility for people with disabilities. This glossary serves three main purposes:
- Provides a practical instrument that will guarantee the quality of the services provided and satisfy the needs of Spanish-speaking people with disabilities who have survived various types of violence.
- Develops a language guide that primarily serves as a tool to raise social awareness regarding systematic discrimination against disabled persons and their related identities.
- Transforms ableist beliefs and attitudes (and their links to other forms of discrimination), which are reflected in the common use of language and everyday communicative situations.
