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!

"...Even though I was flunking English because I couldn't spell; in my high school year book under ambitions I had written 'Author'. When I went off to college I ran into a guy at the University of Oregon named Ralph Salisbury who was my first creative writing instructor and he turned all the lights on for me. He was the first teacher in all my years who actually said I had talent. Some people don't know this, but I have dyslexia."
