Disability Awareness and Sensitivity Training

This training workshop will enable your staff to have a better understanding of the variety of disabilities they may encounter and how to deal with this in a sensitive, practical manner. It will help them to overcome the natural fear we may have when we interact with a disabled person and give tips on awareness and etiquette in these situations.

“Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it.” –Helen Keller
