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.
