Disability awareness is an essential topic for today’s workplaces, where you are not just obligated to look at opportunities for existing staff who become disabled, but you will need to consider the value and untapped expertise in disabled persons who you can hire. This content-rich courseware offers you material focused on the misconceptions and positive realities of hiring people with disabilities; how to conduct fair job interviews; why it makes good business sense to hire people with disabilities; the cornerstones to diversity; and much more.

  • Course Overview You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
  • Defining Terms To start, participants will learn what the terms “disabilities” and “stereotypes” mean.
  • Misconceptions and Realities There are plenty of misconceptions, as well as realities, to working with people with disabilities. We’ll explore some of those in this session
  • A Business Case In this session, participants will complete a case study to explore why companies should hire people with disabilities.
  • Dissecting Labels This session will discuss why labels are inappropriate and how they can make people feel. We will also provide participants with some ground rules for being respectful and using appropriate language, as well as how to be practical when discussing a disability. Several lists of inappropriate terms and more appropriate language will be provided
  • Accessibility Accessibility refers to making your workplace, and your business, available to people. Although laws differ between regions, this session will cover some basics of physical accessibility. Attitudinal barriers will also be discussed.
  • The Cornerstones of Diversity Diversity experts Armida Russell, Amy Tolbert, and Frank Wilderman have identified four cornerstones of diversity development. They are knowledge, acceptance, understanding, and behavior. We will examine each cornerstone in detail during this session.
  • Encouraging Diversity by Hiring This session will address two key hiring issues: what can the company ask, and what can the candidate expect?
  • Using the STOP Technique Diversity expert Lenora Billings-Harris has developed a four-step technique that you can use when someone is behaving in an inappropriate manner. It’s called STOP! Participants will learn about the technique through a lecture and will then practice it in a role play
  • Communication Essentials for Disability Awareness In this session, we will talk about respecting confidentiality, preparing documentation, and where to find good resources.
  • Communication Styles This session will allow participants to take a more objective look at the advantages and disadvantages of both sides of different dichotomies related to communication styles.
  • Critical Conversations Next, we will give participants a framework for discussing disabilities. We will include specific questions that are appropriate for gathering information without infringing on an employee’s rights
  • How Do We Make It Happen? To wrap up the course, we will explore how you can use accommodation and job shadowing to create a truly accessible workplace
  • Workshop Wrap-Up At the end of the course, students will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out an action plan
