 Talk directly to the person with the disability, maintaining eye contact, even if he/she is using an interpreter or personal assistant.
 Encourage the person with the disability to express his/her own opinions, even when parents or friends feel they can speak for the individual.
 Ask if assistance is needed rather than assuming it is. If the person says, “No, thanks,” don’t pressure him/her to accept help anyway.
 Use a normal tone of voice. If the person cannot hear or understand you, he/she will let you know.
 When talking with a person with a cognitive disability, speak in simple, clear sentences. Remember that simple language does not mean childish language.
 When appropriate, ask the person to put in his or her own words what has been said to confirm understanding.

Dear MEL professionals, would you please help me out with the odd data? For example, in a survey about low-income parents, the column of age has some strange values, such as 120.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
