CAFE Disability Awareness and Etiquette Handbook

CAFE

"It is important to see the person and not the disability."

CAFE supports the social model of disability, which states that it is the physical, sensory, intellectual, psychological, and attitudinal barriers that cause disability, not impairments.

This short handbook offers clear and concise information on disability awareness and how to effectively communicate with a range of disabled supporters.  It covers sections such as:

  • Why be inclusive?
  • Communication tips
  • Words and language
  • Blind and partially sighted people
  • Wheelchair users and people with limited mobility
  • Intellectually disabled people
  • Deaf and hard of hearing people
