Chapter 388-837 WAC

The purpose of this proposal is to comply with goals stated in RCW 44.04.280, by replacing demeaning language with respectful language. This will be done by using respectful language when referring to individuals with disabilities by replacing all instances of MR and mental retardation to ID and Intellectual disability. Other housekeeping changes are also being made to reflect agency reorganization. None of these changes will result in any changes to policy, eligibility, or processes.
