Working with a collaborator with disabilities

After this formation, the participants will be sensitized to disabilities and they will be in a position to identify the prejudices in order to avoid them. They will know how to overcome their eventual reluctance facing this difference. Statutory elements will be brought in order to adopt appropriate behaviours and communication modes, as well as preventing, anticipating and analyzing the discriminatory situations.

Who is this intended for?

This can be useful to anyone brought to lead or work with collaborators with disabilities, in order to enable them to  set up prevention measures beforehand.The aim is to accompany people to improve their performances into the company.

Length and number of participants

Length : variable (from half a day to a full day) according to the needs and expectations of the participants.
Participants : up to 15 participants.
Goals : our goal is to give the participants tools to act with benevolence when facing the others’ disability, wether it is visible or not. They will be taught how to handle the situations and to understand the elements at stake in the prevention for the employees.

The essential elements
