General Inclusive Practices

  • Don't Call Me Special - Advocacy blog and website.
  • C-MIST - A Function Based Framework for Emergency Planning - Barbara Purdy's approach based on a “Functional Needs Framework” that identifies people’s actual needs during an emergency rather than labeling them as “special needs”. It is also more inclusive as it identifies people with temporary needs or those who do not identify themselves as having a disability.
