Companies benefit from successful disability management through economic advantages such as increased productivity and the development of new customer groups, while at the same time fulfilling their social and legal responsibility. Language plays a crucial role in this.

💡 what the "person first" method means, and
💡 how we should write today to avoid "ableism".
Ableism describes the discrimination of people with disabilities by measuring people against certain abilities - walking, seeing, social interaction - and reducing them to their impairment.
