For years we have heard the mantra “treat people with disabilities just like their non-disabled counterparts.” Is this an appropriate way to treat people with disabilities?

This webinar will challenge this concept. In a practical sense, people with disabilities do tasks differently to get the work done.

This webinar will challenge participants to:

• Explore the impact of discounting versus accepting differences
• Explore expectations versus outcomes
• Learn disability etiquette
• Learn practical solutions for reasonable accommodations
