Over the past few years Invisible Disabilities or “hidden disabilities” have become more acknowledged by the public, however there are still many misunderstandings and stigmas following disabilities that aren’t obvious, Our ‘new look’ training course helps delegates become more wise of areas that affect people who have invisible disabilities.
In turn this course will make your service more accessible to service users and to be more understanding and knowledgeable in everyday society.
Topics Covered In The Course:
- Understanding the term “invisible disability” – Only 8% of disabled people use a wheelchair yet people are still heard saying “they don’t look disabled!”
- Looking at the statistics and preconceptions of invisible disabilities – reviewing the numbers around disability and the way people can be disabled.
- Examine when hidden disabilities become a visible problem – People are still being judged for using accessible parking bays or accessible toilets.
- Study the term reasonable adjustments – Where it’s come from and what it means to us.
Hosted by Richard Jones, founder and Principal Consultant of Accessible Wales, sessions are informal, extremely informative, very emotive and at times, highly amusing!
