3 new courses focussed on disability issues

I have recently devised 3 new courses and i will be runnig these for Action for Advocacy. They are:

1) Promoting Social Justice. The advocacy definition says advocacy is about social justice. Do you look at advocacy like this? Would you like to know more? Not just another exploration of the social model of disability but also an opportunity to show how the model has worked and how our world has changed because of it and tyhe demands that disabled people have made to live independently.

2) Using People’s Stories. In advocacy we talk about collecting advocacy stories and using them in training. This is one story. it’s kenny’s. Kenny is a guy with learning disabilities who wanted to become independent. This is about what happened to him. His experience involved my intervention as an advocate and highlighted dilemmas for advocates. This course tells the story and explores areas of difficulty.

3) Using Words and Pictures. Accessible Information and how to do it. Now including a session on language and imagery. The world is changing. We are getting better at making information available. We have cmapaigned long and hard for accessible information. the best way to make it happen is to do it yourself though. Don’t depend on others.
