A project in Thailand helped local media improve how they write about disability. First, Disabled People’s International Asia Pacific (DPI-AP) reviewed how Thai media covers disability. Next, DPI-AP taught the media about disability. DPI-AP also created guidelines for media reporting on disability. As a result, the project improved how Thai media covers disability.
This project focuses on disabilities in general. However, similar strategies might improve how media writes about Deaf people, too.
