Universal Design in Learning
with Dr. Nina G
Brought to you by your hosts:
This week, we welcomed Dr. Nina G, a keynote speaker, author, comedian, and disability advocate who talked to us about how companies can be more accommodating to employees with disabilities.
Nina discusses how sometimes training can be hard to accommodate for – if an individual has dyslexia, writing notes or reading from slides may be impractical.
At the same time, some video content may be impractical for an individual who is deaf, who relies on gestures and strong facial communication to understand a message.
To become a more welcoming environment for individuals with disabilities, Dr. Nina G has one, emphatic recommendation: hire more disabled people. Research shows that the more accustomed we are to working with people with disabilities, the better at it we become.
Building a workplace that accommodates all people is like building a workplace that engages people. It may take some learning and effort, but will eventually improve the results your business is able to produce.
