Social service providers almost always have the best of intentions to provide a welcoming environment for people with disabilities. However, many have never received any training on how to provide inclusive programing. Too often, choices are made or language is used that makes a service offering less helpful or less accessible for a person with disabilities than could have been.
This workshop will provide social service practitioners an understanding of the difference between the medical and the social model for understanding disability, with the implications for practice. We will explore the seven principals of universal design and discuss how they apply to a range of service settings. Finally, the class will review inclusive language and consider disability etiquette in the context of our programs and services.
This class meets the Illinois licensure requirement for 3 hours of continuing education in cultural competence.
General Admission: $60**
