Release of the Person-Centred Language Initiative Report!
In Fall 2016, Behavioural Supports Ontario’s (BSO) Knowledge Translation and Communications Advisory reignited a conversation on language with intentions of fulfilling one of its terms of reference objectives: to critically reflect and provide recommendations regarding language and communications used by BSO and its key stakeholders.

Leads were assigned to the BSO Person-Centred Language Initiative and an expert panel comprised of individuals with lived experience and various other expertise was formed. Over the course of a year, the expert panel was able to create a living document in the shape of Person-Centred Language Commitment Statements informed by the authentic voice of persons with lived experience to promote the consistent use of person-centred language that is appropriate, respectful, life-affirming and inclusive when talking about individuals served by BSO’s mandate. This report is now available for everyone to read and share. This document also includes relevant practical resources to further awareness and knowledge regarding person-centred language and communication.
