A-Z of disability etiquette
Thanks for showing an interest in how to approach a person with a disability.
This poster has been developed by Independence Australia to offer you some basic etiquette tips. As everyone is different, it’s only a general guide. The good news is, the tips are similar to the rules applied for good etiquette in general.
We hope you can share this with your family and friends.
