Special Olympics Minnesota’s Person First campaign promotes a new mindset of eliminating generalizations and assumptions by putting the person before their disability label. Person First language does not mean we’re shameful or embarrassed about what makes us who we are. Rather, it’s an objective way of speaking, giving individuals the opportunity to define their own identities.
This elementary-based campaign engages the entire school community around the value of RESPECT. Through engaging activities and relevant messaging, students and staff can shift school culture to be more respectful and inclusive.
