Delaware Enacts Law to Promote Inclusion for People With Disabilities

By: Randi Siegel

Delaware recently passed new legislation to enhance the dignity of disability-related laws by changing the word choices used in existing laws. The initiative is called People First Language, or PFL, and its key point is to make sure that even in just the phrasing of a law, the person -- and not their disability -- comes first. For example, laws should refer to “people with disabilities,” as opposed to “disabled people.”
