Introduction to Defining Disability

LDJ courses align with Disability Justice principles and seek to honor and amplify the voices of Disabled People. 

This first course, Defining Disability, introduces what Disability is, its types, its prevalence, and its many definitions. Throughout the course, the term “Disabled People” refers to the group of people who are externally identified or self-identify as having a Disability, including all Mental, Neurodivergent, Invisible, Physical, Sensory, and Undiagnosed Disabilities.

Identity-first language is used instead of person-first language to reflect Disability as central to a person’s identity. “Disability” and “Disabled People” are capitalized to describe and respect the shared identity of the Disability community.
