Handicapped was for much of the 20th cent. Of a person: having a physical or mental condition which limits activity, movement, sensation, etc. Also occas. The word disabled came to be used as the standard term in this sense in the second half of the 20th cent. It superseded outmoded, and now frequently offensive, terms such as crippled , handicapped , etc. The current pairing in Leo is the handicapped -- die Behinderten Dictionary: behindert. The OED above and the UK government make it quite clear that handicapped is 'outmoded' and could be seen as 'offensive'.
This isn't reflected in the Leo entries. Probably quite a few of the handicapped entries can be scrapped altogether. They are also and more recently called "differently abled" so as not to focus on their dis ability but on whatever abilities they might have. Comment Well, that's interesting. And at odds with the OED! I don't expect the OED to be the final word in American usage. Comment Yes.
I don't think "handicapped" has been in use for quite a while in AE. It got supplanted by disabled, which got supplanted by challenged, which got supplanted by differently abled. Who knows what's next. Comment Ok, so that would seem to confirm an 'archaic' style tag for all the handicapped entries. This is what he said:.
Comment There are several relevant discussions in the archives about "handicapped" being superseded by "disabled", e. Comment yes, but papousek specifically asked about AE. Comment I would say yes, 'handicapped' is older usage, more outmoded, and more likely to be experienced as thoughtlessly offensive, than 'disabled. Yes, ' persons with disabilities' ' People writing longer texts, especially in academia, will be expected to know that.
You wrote to Andrew Solomon? Wow, that's like the time Marianne wrote to Michael Mosley. Yay you. That's why the wheelchair symbol is often used in place of any words at all, and when there needs to be a single word, that word is now indeed 'accessible. Comment As for terms such as 'challenged' and 'differently abled' -- Yes, those are of course also occasionally seen in contexts seeking to avoid negativity.
But even more often, they seem to be seized on as terms of ridicule by people mocking PC language -- probably, in fact, more than they ever really caught on among academics or people who work with people with disabilities.

Special Olympics, Paralympics, etc. So in my experience, while such terms do exist, or have at times existed in the course of various changing trends in inclusive language, they don't really tend to come up as much just in basic information about wheelchair access. They belong to a different register.
Comment I'd written to him before after having read his book, and he'd answered, so I had his e-mail address and he answered almost immediately Comment Re 9: So in my experience, while such terms do exist I'm only asking because although I myself am not on a professional level dealing with the OP's subject matter, I live with a person who is "differently abled" my girlfriend's daughter , but I also live with a person my girlfriend who deals with this subject on a professional level as a special ed teacher.
It is from her that I get most of my terminology and my "knowledge" about these things, and to my knowledge, "differently abled" tends to be used not mockingly or as ridicule, but as a "more sensitive" way of dealing with the issues of the "disabled. Edit: re "challenged," that word has been in circulation long enough to have become mainstream and adapted to use with other words having little to do with one's abilities - or merely indirectly.
For example, someone who's short would be "vertically challenged" while someone who's bald would be "follicly challenged" and I remember using some time ago "crurally challenged" in an article I wrote - more as a joke, though, of course. Suggestions people with disabilities - die Behinderten person with a disability - der Behinderte, die Behinderte disabled people - die Behinderten the disabled - die Behinderten Comment Useful conversation, thanks everyone especially penguin and Andrew Solomon!!
Do you think I also need to register these in the wrong entry forum to get them deleted? Then we're looking at new entries along the lines of the above, with a preference for 'person with a disability' over 'disabled person' is it possible to list preferred choices higher up in the dictionary?

Sorry Marianne that these have all been proposed before and recently, too , I hadn't looked too closely at the archive. Although it does seem to me that the handicapped entries need deleting or replacing reasonably urgently. Please do all comment on my 'accessible' thread, too. Comment Ok, I started a 'wrong entry' thread as well for the entries with the word handicapped related discussion: handicapped various - behindert.
