More thoughts about that Growth-Attenuation Therapy article

I’ve been reading a lot since posting yesterday about the NYT Magazine article. These thoughts come from an author/editor on twitter, Kayla Whaley (@PunkinOnWheels). I’ve linked to a Storify of her tweets about the language of the article below:

Language, Framing, and Perspective in Reporting on Disability

I was initially going to link to individual tweets, but her entire Tweet essay on the subject is excellent, well worth reading and has been neatly collected. Check it out!

Edit: Whaley also refers in her tweets to this storify and tweets written by Alice Wong (@SFdirewolf), a San Francisco disability activist:

No, @NYTmag, #AbleistViolence is NOT ok!
