Are you ready to #ResolveToRespect?

We can all make respect a resolution this year. Need some pointers on disability etiquette and inclusion? We've got resources and tips for you here.

Join our Twitter chat on respect:

We're hosting a Twitter chat on Thursday, February 16, at 6 p.m. CST / 7 p.m. EST, all about what it means to respect with our minds, feelings, and actions as a community of people both with and without disabilities. Get the details about the chat and learn how you can participate!

#ResolveToRespect in action:

We've gathered some of the best information from around the web about respect, inclusion, and accessibility.

 Don’t patronize people who use wheelchairs by patting them on the head.
 Be considerate of the extra tie it might take a person with a disability to get things done or said.
 But don’t be embarrassed if you use common expressions relating to the person’s disability such as “see you later” or “I’ve got to run.”
 If you would like to help someone with a disability, ask if he or she needs it, and listen to any instructions the person may want to give.
 Don’t shout at someone who is deaf. Don’t speak slowly. Just talk like you normally would.
 Don’t lean or hang on someone’s wheelchair
