People-first language focuses on the person instead of a condition/diagnosis. It can be a more respectful and positive way of referring to people than defining them by their condition/diagnosis. However, some people prefer to use identity-first language (e.g., autistic, the blind). In the disability community, it is considered acceptable to err on the side of using person-first language until you know that a person prefers to use identity-first language.
