From Discounting Disabilities to Accepting Differences


For years we have heard the mantra “treat people with disabilities just like their non-disabled counterparts.” Is this an appropriate way to treat people with disabilities?

This webinar will challenge this concept. In practical sense, people with disabilities do tasks differently to get the work done.

This webinar will challenge participants to:

• Explore the impact of discounting versus accepting difference
• Explore expectations versus outcome
• Learn disability etiquette
• Learn practical solutions for reasonable accommodations
