Disability Inclusion Training

Disability Inclusion Training

This 6 hour course has been designed to provide attendees with the knowledge and understanding they need to make their particular programmes, facilities and activities more inclusive of people with disabilities.

Through a range of interactive exercises participants are made aware of the main barriers to participation, and are provided with practical advice and guidance to develop their ability to adapt games and activities to include all ability groups. 

Participants will be introduced to a variety of warm-up games, activities and disability sports while given the knowledge of how to make these inclusive for all ability groups. 

On completion of the course all participants will receive a Disability Sport NI Certificate of Attendance and a resource pack containing colourful activity cards.
