YOUR ACTIONS MATTER
It’s not just about protecting yourself, it’s about protecting everyone.
USE THE #RUAWARE TO SHARE STORIES AND HELPFUL INFO TO CONNECT THE DISABILITY COMMUNITY.
> Be accountable. Your actions matter for personal hygiene, social distancing and self-isolation to keep people with disability safe.
> Be responsible. When in doubt sit it out, but still reach out via phone, FaceTime or Skype to check in.
Not everyone communicates the same way
Every disability is different and may require you to communicate in different ways.
> Talk directly to the person with disability
> Be flexible in your approach and take your time
> Don’t be scared, just ask
> Be guided by the person who will share or show you the best way to communicate
The current environment makes life for people with disability more challenging
The impact is different across the disability community and remember not all disability is visible.
