Disability Equality –

Disability Equality Training courses have been run by disabled people for over 30 years, to highlight the very real issues that disabled people face in their daily lives.

Disability Equality Training differs from Disability Awareness Training.  Awareness Training tends to focus on specific conditions or impairments and often uses ‘simulation exercises’ (such as sitting in wheelchairs). These are carried out in order to give attendees an ‘understanding’ of how the specific impairment affects an individual. In reality there is no way anyone can experience the social barriers in society by ‘playing disabled’ This then means that Awareness sessions have a ‘medical focus’, as they often look at how an individual can be helped to ‘overcome’ the condition. Furthermore, Disability Awareness Training sessions are often facilitated by people who have no direct experience of disability.

 

We can also provide courses in –

  • Independent living
  • Social stories and comic Book conversations
  • Sensory Processing
  • Person Centred Planning
  • Dignity and Respect

 

All objectives and course contents can be mixed and matched to suit needs

 We are experienced in delivering learning to people of all abilities – when we ask if any learners have additional needs, we do actually make adjustments to our training and delivery so please ask!!
