Most people want to show respect and sensitivity to people with disabilities, but they simply don’t know how. It’s understandable, since there are hundreds of disabilities and millions who have them. There is so much to know that it tends to overwhelm most people.
That’s where WheelsUp’s Wanda Boshoff comes in.
With more than 20 years of life in a wheelchair, coupled with more that 28 years of experience as an occupational therapist, she strips down the complex issues to their understandable essence. She clearly communicates the steps anyone can take to relate and respond properly to people with disabilities.
Every organization is different and therefore every disability awareness workshop is different. WheelsUp customizes presentations to meet the needs of specific issues, sensitivities, and levels of awareness within each organization.
As a result, you get precisely the seminar your organization needs. Your people get an up close look at the lives of people with disabilities and a wealth of tips for treating them with respect. Your organization becomes more welcoming as well as better able to attract a greater diversity of experience and talent.
