National Center on Disability and Journalism

Since being featured in the 12-08-2017 Scout Report, the National Center on Disability and Journalism has continued to expand resource offerings. Readers may want to check out The Disability Angle blog, covering timely topics such as the interplay between COVID-19 and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The National Center on Disability and Journalism (NCTJ) is a non-profit organization based at Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. NCTJ aims to provide "support and guidance for journalists as they cover people with disabilities." These resources include the Disability Language Style Guide, which provides context and recommendations for inclusive vocabulary related to disability. Each entry in this style guide provides a history of each word and phrase along with recommendations from the NCTJ and the AP Style Guide. While aimed specifically at journalists, this guide may also be of interest to grant writers, educators, and individuals who write internal communications or newsletters. The guide is also available in Spanish and Romanian. Visitors will find a few additional resources on the Resources tab, including tools for educators and public relations professionals.
