Missouri City Stops Identifying People by Disability

So refreshing and reassuring. And it validates the direction in which YAI is heading when it comes to language and branding. Even after spending four years in Missouri for college, must confess I have no never heard of Arnold, Mo. They should definitely be on everyone's radar now!!!

ARNOLD, Mo. -- The City of Arnold became one of Missouri’s more progressive cities during the City Council meeting on March 1.
At that City Hall meeting, at 2101 Jeffco Blvd., councilmen approved guidelines for writing and reporting about people with disabilities.
Write about the people first, only mention the disability if it’s needed,” Bill Knittng, Director of the Jefferson County Developmental Disabilities Resource Board, said about the motion.
