Examining language and vocabulary used by people living with disability

This report was commissioned by the Disability Royal Commission to explore how people with disability use language, as well as concepts such as safety, inclusion, belonging and self-determination.

The report finds that people with disability interpret the terms violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation in a very broad way. They could even construe help from others as violent or abusive behaviour.

This report is available for download in a variety of formats including PDF, Word, Easy English and Auslan.
