Free Event

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 
  • Language  
  • 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.

Please note that this session will include BSL interpreting from Lynne Bateman and Sabine Zielinska.
