The overall aim is to build professionals confidence by encouraging a positive response to change. Unlike Impairment Awareness Training, which is lengthy and costly, Disability Equality Training addresses the inequality of opportunity that disabled children face. This session does not deal with individual deficit, but instead outlines the ideas that promote inclusive culture. It supports shared responsibility to enabling full participation by responding flexibly to all children’s needs within all settings. This ‘getting the environment right’ approach is reached by developing positive action to eliminate prejudice and barriers. All ideas are underpinned by disability theory, wellbeing research and are related to broader changes in service provision across the UK.
