Program Overview

Disability Equality Training is a highly collaborative and focused, dynamic curriculum that aims to change attitudes and practices in order to increase the inclusion of persons with disabilities in the labor market, services, and activities.

Participants are introduced to the real issues and discrimination faced by all persons with disabilities in society with the aim of changing their behaviour, policies and practices. It is designed to enable participants to understand “disability” from the perspective of the social model, and to commit to removing disabling barriers.
