Disability Awareness Training

Work through difficulties and enforce a change in behaviour and attitude, to bring awareness and a more positive perspective in the workplace.

What is it?

A Disability Awareness Training session is a 3-hour workshop for up to 10 individuals with one of our Psychologists and Disability Ambassadors. This takes place in the client’s place of work and is for the client, and their colleagues, managers, and/or HR. The session aims to aid in a paradigm shift in attitudes towards disabilities in the workplace and begin the formation of a positive and supportive working environment, as well as teaching those about a range of support solutions and reasonable adjustments that could be implemented.

The session lasts three hours and is in a workshop format. There are group activities, games, interactions, and question opportunities to make it a wholly holistic learning experience.

The psychologist aims to challenge your beliefs and perceptions and provide a safe and judgment-free area to discuss all aspects of a disability.

Sessions could cover:

  • Neurodiversities (Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, ADHD and Autism – either individually or together
  • Mental Health
