No one seems to agree on what to call our vehicles. Are they wheelchair vans? Or are they handicap vans? A wheelchair van makes the product sound as though the vehicle is made of wheelchairs, or that it is only made for wheelchair users, which is incorrect. The word “handicap” is a term that isn’t considered appropriate by many as a description of people with disabilities. This is called disability-first speak, and more people are moving toward a person-first language approach, as in, “a person with a disability” versus “a disabled person.” Some other names for our vans include WAV (an acronym for wheelchair accessible vans) lift vans, mobility vans, and conversion vans.
