People working in media can exert a powerful influence over the way people with disabilities are perceived. It's important to the 54 million Americans with disabilities that they be portrayed realistically and that their disabilities are explained accurately.
Easterseals' Media Room provides resources we hope will help you in your coverage of disability issues, from interviewing someone who has a disability to using respectful language in your stories. The Media Room also includes information about our organization, including the use of Easterseals' name and logo, and frequently asked questions.
Easterseals, its partners and volunteers from across the country are committed to breaking down attitudinal barriers to help children and adults with disabilities gain greater independence. Thank you for helping make a difference.
