Disability Equality Training
SDSS Members are invited to register for Disability Equality Training on Thursday 26 August 2021.
Disability Equality Training was designed by disabled people to enable people to explore the essential issues that influence perceptions and perspectives of disability and determine the impact this has upon attitudes, service design and delivery.
Disability Equality training is designed and delivered by disabled people and covers four fundamental elements:
- Models of Disability, which explores frameworks for understanding disability
- Language of Disability, which explores why language is important and identifies some basic terms for discussion
- Cultural Perspectives, which explores the influence media and imagery has upon our perception of disability
- Barriers, which looks at the discrimination disabled people continually encounter and how these can be addressed
This would be a half days training which would enable participants to gain a firm grounding in the ideas and good practice relating to disability equality.
