DET is disability-led, informed by lived experience, and looks at disability from a cultural context. This helps participants to connect to the content and ground their learning in real life examples & practices. DET is different from disability awareness training which focuses on impairments and impairment specific advice, whereas DET still gives practical advice but also gives participants a broader perspective & knowledge. This helps participants to make informed decisions moving forward after the training.
Our DET package covers topics including:
- Cultural representation – How disability is viewed and its impact
- Models of disability and how they are used
- Legislation & Activism – Where we’ve been and how we got here.
- Individualism & Statistics
- Mitigating Barriers
The session is 2.5 hours long and includes at least 2 breaks of 5 minutes each. Zoom captioning is available. The training includes some interaction, but this is optional.
