An approachable guide to being a thoughtful, informed ally to disabled people, with actionable steps for what to say and do (and what not to do) and how you can help make the world a more inclusive place.
 
“A candid, accessible cheat sheet for anyone who wants to thoughtfully join the conversation... Emily makes the intimidating approachable and the complicated clear.”
—Rebekah Taussig, author of Sitting Pretty: The View from My Ordinary, Resilient, Disabled Body
 
People with disabilities are the world’s largest minority, an estimated 15 percent of the global population. But many of us — disabled and nondisabled alike — don’t know how to act, what to say, or how to be an ally to the disability community. Demystifying Disability is a friendly handbook on the important disability issues you need to know about, including:
 
• How to appropriately think, talk, and ask about disability
• Recognizing and avoiding ableism (discrimination toward disabled people)
• Practicing good disability etiquette
• Ensuring accessibility becomes your standard practice, from everyday communication to planning special events
• Appreciating disability history and identity
• Identifying and speaking up about disability stereotypes in media
 
Authored by celebrated disability rights advocate, speaker, and writer Emily Ladau, this practical, intersectional guide offers all readers a welcoming place to understand disability as part of the human experience.
