Carrigtwohill to Host One-Day Disability Inclusion Training Course in Late August

By Alan Sheehan


Carrigtwohill Community Centre will host a Disability Inclusion Training course on Thursday, 31 August.
The six-hour introductory level course runs from 10-4pm and is designed to help participants to adapt their sport, physical activity or physical education sessions to make them more accessible for children or adults with disabilities.
The course is priced at €45 and upon completion all participants will receive a certification and a resource pack which includes resource cards and a disability inclusion training manual.
The course is aimed at sports leaders, coaches, volunteers, teachers, principals, special education needs assistants, parents or anyone who has an interest in making their sport accessible and inclusive for people with disabilities.
There are three main learning outcomes for the course: communication, knowledge and understanding, and practical application. By the end of the course participants will be able to be confident in the use of appropriate language and communicating with people with disabilities, identify strategies to facilitate people with disabilities to participate, and practice and apply strategies to facilitate people with disabilities to participate.
The Disability Inclusion Training course is coordinated by CARA National Adapted Physical Activity Centre and facilitated by Cork Sports Partnership. CARA is a national organisation which aims to provide a collaborative and partnership platform throughout Ireland to enhance sport and physical activity opportunities for people with disabilities.
