Train your volunteers to be “disability aware”

The National Disability Co-ordination Officer program and ADCET offers free online training for workers and volunteers for “awareness of disability and the impact that societal attitudes and inherent stigma and discrimination have on the lives of people with disability” called Introduction to Disability Awareness. The course is FREE!

They also provide a screen reader version for people with vision-impairment or blindness

About the training:

This disability awareness eLearning training resource seeks to challenge the ingrained cultural and attitudinal barriers that perpetuate this discrimination and provides participants with a general overview of the legislative framework which supports the inclusion of people with disability in Australia.

The training consists of four modules which must be completed in successive order. Each module ends with a short quiz to allow participants to demonstrate their understanding.  You can complete the disability awareness eLearning training at your own pace – you do not need to finish the training in one sitting and the entire course should take an average of 60 minutes to complete.
