I think this website does a good job explaining the basic principles of "disability etiquette" one should use while addressing someone in a wheelchair or someone with a hearing or visual impairment. This website, however, does not go into detail or truly describe why certain things are considered respectful or offer the viewpoint/perspective of a disabled person (Although, there is no author listed on the Easterseals website). If you are looking for a quick and simple overview on "disability etiquette", look no further!

New information and communications technologies can improve the quality of life for people with disabilities, but only if such technologies are designed from the beginning so that everyone can use them. Given the explosive growth in the use of the World Wide Web for publishing, electronic commerce, lifelong learning and the delivery of government services, it is vital that the Web be accessible to everyone.
