Disability Language Style Guide, National Center on Disability and Journalism (webpage). As language, perceptions and social norms change rapidly, it is becoming increasingly difficult for journalists and other communicators to figure out how to refer to people with disabilities. Even the term “disability” is not universally accepted. This style guide, which covers dozens of words and terms commonly used when referring to disability, can help.

How to Successfully Advocate for Hearing Loops (50 pages, HLAA) This comprehensive guide provides an easy-to-follow roadmap for creating looped communities. Sections include Being Strategic, A-Z Advocacy, an Advocacy Cheat Sheet and FAQ, inspiring success stories, and much more.

Like a resource library, this document provides access to GITHL tools, resources, and knowledge that advocates can use to educate decision-makers about hearing loss, communication access, and the benefits of hearing loops. Links to view and download each tool are included.
