Training resources help employers understand do’s and don’ts of disability etiquette
“Disability etiquette for me – and for when we present it to people when we’re training – it’s those respectful ways of how to communicate with somebody with a disability and about people with disabilities. So not even just your direct interactions with people with a disability, but how you’re talking about them amongst other groups of individuals that are not disabled.”
Daniel Spencer and Cassie Shropshire, business relations consultants with the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services, join Alabama Care lead anchor Alex Bimes to discuss proper communication and encouraging others to speak about their disabilities.
