Disability Etiquette in the Workplace

Visual impairment, hearing loss and neurodiversity

The Disability Etiquette workshop introduces some of the fundamental elements of building an inclusive workplace, through exploring three key areas of disability: visual impairment, hearing loss and neurodiversity

The workshop supports participants to develop knowledge and awareness in terms of conditions, how they are manifest, and how they impact on the health and emotional wellbeing of individuals.

The workshop will also inspire collaborative solutions-focussed thinking, enabling participants to consider the small but high-impact adjustments that can be made to everyday business and office practice that will build a more inclusive and effective working environment.

This course has been quality-assured and validated by CPD Accreditation Services.
