80. Pro-person signage

Think about the wheel chair accessable signs you usually see. Its a person like figure, sitting above a circle, waiting for life to come and act on it. Now look at this picture:

Look at the action in this figure. In mental health we talk about pro-client language. A person with bipolar disorder instead of a bipolar person. This signage gives the client agency in an very uncommon way. Gold stars to the Newton Senior Center!
