Disability Awareness Course.

The disabled community on a global basis represents an extraordinary yet wholly-undervalued pool of diverse and priceless talent.  Even in regions where equality in the workplace has been a mandatory consideration for many years, underemployment of disabled individuals remains rife.  However, strengthening legislation and more severe governmental penalties are forcing businesses to take a second look at their own approaches to workplace diversity.  So while progress has only recently stepped up a gear, the importance of thorough disability awareness is now comprehensively acknowledged across all contemporary sectors.

This disability awareness course, has been designed to enhance and further workplace diversity knowledge, aimed at those working in HR or business management.  To understand the potential locked in the disabled community is to gain access to an extensive human resource contingency of limitless value.  Four intensive modules explore the concept of diversity in the workplace, along with what constitutes a disability and how misconceptions lead to mutually-detrimental outcomes.  Course content of disability course online, also outlines the benefits of building a diverse workforce, along with an essential overview of professional communication techniques and strategies. 

Course content of online disability course, is delivered over four in-depth modules:

Module 1 – What are Disabilities

The course begins by investigating what exactly the term ‘disability’ means, incorporating a discussion of various types of short and long-term disabilities.  Candidates study and consider a variety of common disability ‘labels’, along with the way in which misconceptions and stereotypes paint an inaccurate, unfair and counterproductive image of the disabled working community.

Module 2 – Accessibility

Course Module 2 focuses on accessibility in the workplace, from the perspective of the contemporary employer.  Candidates discuss the common physical barriers and challenges that can prevent or limit diversity/equality in the workplace, along with a breakdown of the true cornerstones of diversity and the fundamentals of acceptance and behaviour.

Module 3 – Encouraging Diversity by Hiring

The following module turns attention to furthering/enhancing workplace diversity by actively enhancing hiring strategies.  Candidates explore the expectations of disabled applicants and what to expect as a recruiter, along with effective techniques for addressing diversity issues and an exploration of the self-hypnosis ‘STOP’ technique.

Unit 4 – Communication Essentials for Disability Awareness

Bringing the course to a close, Module 4 centres on key communication considerations from the perspective of a diverse workplace manager. Essential subtopics introduced include establishing appropriate ground rules, choosing effective styles of communication, maintaining employee confidentiality, document preparation and the consequences of communication breakdowns.
