Ways Others can Show Respect for Your Child
Your child may see different health and educational specialists. Here are some reminders on how they should treat your child with respect.
1. Make eye contact with the child and speak directly to him or her.
2. Include the child in the conversation as much as possible. If you are speaking about the child to another in front of the child, don't ignore the child.
3. Don't treat the child with a disability differently than anyone else. Don't ask questions you wouldn't ask a child without a disability unless it's necessary to treat the child's problems.
4. If the child has a hearing difficulty, get the child's attention first with a tap on the shoulder or a wave.
5. If the child has a speech difficulty, the person should speak normally and not interrupt or pretend to understand. They should be considerate of the extra time it might take for the child to say or do things.
6. If the child has visual difficulty, the person should speak to your child before touching him or her. When they offer to help, the child should take his or her arm and be guided, not pushed around.
7. Use person-first language that is respectful and puts the child first.
Don't get angry with others who may not be aware of how to interact with children with disabilities. ASCF has a handout with more suggestions that inform them about how to act.
