Question: What do you say to a disabled person?

Put the person first. Say “person with a disability” rather than “disabled person.” Say “people with disabilities” rather than “the disabled.” For specific disabilities, saying “person with Tourette syndrome” or “person who has cerebral palsy” is usually a safe bet. Still, individuals do have their own preferences.

How do you ask a disabled person if they need help?

Just because someone has a disability, do not assume they need help. Do not give assistance without asking first if they want it. You can ask if the person would like help, but dont ask repeatedly or qualify their response with “are you sure?” Respect someones choice even if it looks like theyre struggling.

What are some questions to ask a disabled person?

“How many times a year do you go to the doctor?” “Are you going to be able to cope?” “Does your disability make you get angry with other people?” “Have you ever lost a job because of your disability?”
