Excellent resource, thanks - it's always a challenge to change people's language around illness and disability. I worked for an AIDS service organization in the early '90's when 'victim' was commonly used to describe a person with AIDS or HIV. We had many briefings with media and spokespeople not to use the 'v' word - it mostly stuck! Currently we're facing new legislation in Ontario that requires service workers to have sensitivity training for people with disabilities. R
