Introduction to Accessibility and Inclusive Practices
An introduction course to accessibility, the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations 2018 and developing inclusive behaviours in your organisation to better support your users and staff. This first and second sessions will give you a basic grounding in the effects of the regulations, what your organisation needs to be doing, what accessibility means to your staff and external users, and where you can go to start finding out more.
People with disabilities face additional barriers or challenges to everyday tasks all the time. We work to remove these barriers, but sometimes even good intentions can add difficulties for someone with a disability. In the third session, attendees will learn from our blind trainer about personal experiences and barriers they have faced. Attendees will learn some good practice methods for when providing help to disabled individuals and that often its about asking how the person would like support personal to them.
