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!

The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect.
