Building on the information shared in the January 2016 Migration Matters Supporting Newcomers with Disabilities edition and responding to the need for more resources for newcomers with disabilities, this 90-minute webinar explored barriers to accessing settlement services for newcomers with disabilities and how providers can improve accessibility to assist clients’ integration into communities.
This webinar focused on:
- physical disabilities (dexterity, mobility, seeing, hearing, etc.)
- accessibility and inclusion (including inclusive language)
- the Canadian context of disability awareness
- case studies and available resources for settlement and language providers
This webinar was designed to equip managers, instructors of LINC and frontline staff with information on how to support clients with disabilities and how to provide them with referrals to other supporting organizations.
