Disability Awareness and Inclusion Techniques
In this workshop, participants will work with disability advocates to address attitudinal barriers towards disability equality. Identify language and best practices within your environment that will empower your staff to activate inclusive practices and techniques and establish a framework of mutual understanding and respect for diversity and difference. This training will cover an overview of Universal Design and Universal Design Learning, disability language, and best practices for working with and being inclusive of people and learners with disabilities. Participants will gain a better overall understanding of accessibility and will leave with the tools to provide and share-out these awareness-building skills within their institution.
