How Language Can Impact Accessibility and Inclusion
Tuesday, January 19, 2020
2:00pm – 3:00pm (EST)
We all want the families and youth that interact with our PTI’s to feel welcome and included. One of the ways to create a welcoming and inclusive environment is to use language that is accessible, easy to understand, and culturally aware. During this webinar you will learn what accessible and inclusive language is, how to use it, and tips for creating content that promotes engagement and understanding from all people.
During the session participants will learn:
The difference between person-first vs. identity-first language
What fonts and reading levels are considered accessible.
How to simplify content to make it easier to understand.
