Learn from disabled people about how you should adjust your working practices

"Best online training session I have attended. Thanks for such a great session - lots of tips to take away. It was great to hear Adi's perspective as an assistive technology user."

That's the feedback from an attendee of one of our training sessions designed to highlight the barriers that disabled people experience.

AbilityNet has launched a selection of lived experience courses as part of its 'Don't Disable Me' series, that will provide attendees with a deep dive into the experiences of people of living with different disabilities and impairments. The courses focus on visual, hearing, physical, mental health and neurodiversity barriers.

A focus on disability inclusion in the workplace is a strategic imperative from a moral, legal and commercial standpoint. Get ahead in 2022 by learning how to adjust working practices to build a workplace that is inclusive by design and uses technology to enable all employees to perform at their best.

'Don't Disable Me' courses 

You can book 3 people onto each of the courses for a discounted bundle rate of £99 per person.

Led by individuals with lived experience of disabilities, and AbilityNet’s workplace inclusion experts, in the courses you'll learn about the common barriers that people encounter at work, in study and in day-to-day life.

You'll also find out more about the kinds of assistive technologies and tools that people use to overcome these barriers and the steps that everyone can take to avoid creating barriers in the first place. 

The courses are interactive and practical. They include real-life stories to help articulate how employing the social model of disability at your workplace or education institution can lead to a working or learning environment that embraces and welcomes everyone and is inclusive by design.
