There has been considerable discussion around people-first and respectful language. Person-first language was a strategic battleground for transforming the ways of thinking about disability (Withers, 2012). Much debate has taken place regarding the appropriate language to use in relation to individuals with disabilities. we should use the more acceptable and appropriate term, “people with intellectual disabilities.” Referring to people with disabilities as “the disabled” or “the mentally retarded” creates an image of a group of people, all of whom have many of the same characteristics. In fact, such labels as “the blind” and “the mentally ill” often do not even include the additional word “people.”

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?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
