Course Number: II001A​

Disability Etiquette, Awareness and Understanding

The training uses lecture, discussion and cases to guide participants through disability etiquette and awareness issues from a social justice perspective. No one ever means to do or say the wrong thing to someone, especially someone who either has a disability or who has a child or other dependent with special needs. It most often occurs as a result of inexperience or a general lack of comfort and confidence in knowing the "right thing" to do and/or say. This session will highlight specific examples that will resonate with everyone's experiences. Participants will walk away from this session with confidence in speaking, working and socializing with people who either have a disability (of any type and severity) or who have a dependent with special needs. Examples of appropriate actions, language, etc. will be reviewed on a disability-specific basis.
