A free e-learning resource for the UK workforce about Disability.
It consists of three programmes:
- Disability Matters: all Disability Matters e-learning sessions
- Disability Matters Learning Packages: e-learning sessions that have been grouped together to meet particular learning needs.
- Disability Matters Resources: Face-to-face training resource packs
Disability Matters is a suite of free online e-learning resources for everyone who comes into contact with disabled children and young people. Although not produced primarily for parent carers or disabled young people, anyone can access the resources, which should be clear for anyone to understand.
Each Disability Matters session (about 20-30 minutes of e-Learning) has been co-produced by disabled young people, parent carers and other experts in the field and is full of real stories of the experiences of disabled children, young people and their families. There are tips on what everyone can do better to warmly welcome, value, respect and communicate with them as well as more actively include them in choices, decisions, everyday activities and access to services.
All Disability Matters content is free to access, with no registration necessary. However, registration is recommended, as this allows you to track your learning.
