Webinar

Navigating disability with accessibility

Drawing on his lived experience as a person with a disability who works from home and who uses caregiving services, Andrew will explore how we can make caregiving spaces accessible for clients and consumers alike. We’ll look at different aspects of disability management, approaches to accommodations, and consider how these can impact psychological health. We will explore the difficulties of needing care in a workspace, challenges of working from home when one is severely disabled and so much more. Participants will walk away with the tools to support disabled people at work and at home and will also leave with the tools to confront their own ableism.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the unique needs of people with disabilities in work and home settings.
  • Identify challenges in accessing caregiving services and creating accessible spaces.
  • Learn practical strategies for accommodating disabilities in the workplace and remote work environments.
  • Explore the psychological impact of disability on individuals.
  • Develop awareness of personal biases and tools to foster more inclusive environments for people with disabilities.
