The social model of disability

The social model of disability is a way of thinking which states that disability is caused by barriers within society rather than an individual’s impairment. Through this lens, it’s possible to conceive that if all barriers could be removed, disability would cease to exist.

Content Best Practices

  • Avoid unnecessary words
  • Reduce to its essence
  • Avoid slang and informal jargon
  • Use active rather than passive phrases
  • Use direct commands where appropriate
  • Identify and define pronunciations

Text align left

Centered and left aligned text are the most widely used text alignments.

How you use these text alignments can either help or harm your users when they read.

Text justification

Avoiding text that is fully justified (to both left and right margins) in a way that causes poor spacing between words or characters.

Using left-justified text for languages that are written left to right and right-justified text for languages that are written right-to-left.
