Book Overview

An approachable guide to being a thoughtful, informed ally to disabled people, with actionable steps for what to say and do (and what not to do) and how you can help make the world a more inclusive place

A candid, accessible cheat sheet for anyone who wants to thoughtfully join the conversation . . . Emily makes the intimidating approachable and the complicated clear.--Rebekah Taussig, author of Sitting Pretty: The View from My Ordinary, Resilient, Disabled Body

People with disabilities are the world's largest minority, an estimated 15 percent of the global population. But many of us--disabled and nondisabled alike--don't know how to act, what to say, or how to be an ally to the disability community. Demystifying Disability is a friendly handbook on the important disability issues you need to know about, including:

- How to appropriately think, talk, and ask about disability
- Recognizing and avoiding ableism (discrimination toward disabled people)
- Practicing good disability etiquette
- Ensuring accessibility becomes your standard practice, from everyday communication to planning special events
- Appreciating disability history and identity
- Identifying and speaking up about disability stereotypes in media

Authored by celebrated disability rights advocate, speaker, and writer Emily Ladau, this practical, intersectional guide offers all readers a welcoming place to understand disability as part of the human experience.

   An Enjoyable and Informative Read
Great book, well written and informative. I admire Emily's advocacy work and I really enjoy her writing, Morgenthau said. Though she is witty, honest and irreverent, Mrs Clinton is also very much a work in progress. Thanks to Dr. Goin, we get important information in relatable ways. Her perspective is informed by her own lived experience but is shared with great humility, compassion and strength, Raymond said.

   Not a "reference manual" the author felt angry
I would consider this book more of a platform for the author to shame and scare people than teach, Graham said.

   Feeling a little shamed
The book was originally intended to become more aware of the many ways in which I might unwittingly do or say things that are not necessarily true. Before she started talking, I wanted to be sure I was using the right language. Because of my disability, I get that I may never truly get it. But I care enough to pick up this book, and the tone made me feel a little talked down to and shamed. It's just that I'm not the only one who thinks that way. I think we'll find out more tomorrow, Reichert said. I just feel left with the idea that almost everything we are doing is wrong. 0 3171616 3171201 I think we are being left behind, Lord. Even though I feel a little more discouraged from participating in these important conversations, I did find some of it very interesting and helpful. I think I'll let it settle for a while and then re-read it.

   Insensitive writer
The writer is too sensitive a subject matter. She doesn't give good advice because I believe that most disabled people would not agree with what she wrote. I have worked with people of all ages and abilities, and they have all had good insight. I was especially disappointed at how her and her mother treated the gentleman that was trying to be kind and playful, Raymond said. Then he would not accept his apology, which he even tried to gift them monetarily to make amends. It angered him and in the end, she missed an opportunity to show kindness in return. I'm sorry.

This is a great book for colleagues, friends or family who want to do the right thing, but don't know how to start the conversation.

   Great for disabled and non-disabled readers
A great read, said Barbara. As a disabled person, I learned a lot and am grateful for this resource I can share with others, he said.

   Important for every parent -- highly recommend
I have waited for a book like this. The program teaches people with a disability how to speak naturally and authentically to others. Having a child with a disability, I have always been annoyed by people who speak to my child like a baby, lean in and talk, move away, or speak to me as if she was not there. We really need to get this right as a society, she writes. It's time to learn how to do this right, Mr. Rule told us.
