Person First Language A person is a person first and then any descriptions come after that. We would NOT say “the orange hat man”. We WOULD say “the man with the orange hat". Knowing this. Then this belief is true as well. We would NOT say, “the Down Syndrome boy” or “my Autistic daughter”. We WOULD say, “the boy with Down Syndrome” or “my daughter with Autism”. Simply changing HOW we say things, can change HOW we view things.
