About the course:
This course will prepare learners to facilitate empowerment of people with disabilities. The social model of disability says that disability is caused by the way society is organised, rather than by a person’s impairment or difference. It looks at ways of removing barriers that restrict life choices for disabled people.
When barriers are removed, disabled people can be independent and equal in society, with choice and control over their own lives.
