WHAT IS THE SOCIAL MODEL OF DISABILITY ?
The social model of disability is a different way of viewing the world, developed by disabled people. The social model’s message is simple. People are disabled by barriers in society, not by their impairment or difference. The social model helps us recognise barriers that make life challenging for the disabled. By committing to remove these barriers, we as a caring and compassionate society can create equal opportunity, independence and autonomy for the disabled and marginalized.
WHAT WILL YOU GAIN FROM THIS TRAINING?
New Knowledge: An understanding of the importance of getting it right, in language and behaviour, when sharing space and working with disabled people – and tips on ways of achieving this. Acquire practical learning through scenario based case studies – all from the horse’s mouth.
