Guidelines, Recommendations, Adaptations, Including Disability, or GRAIDs, were
developed as a method to adapt evidence-based programs to be inclusive of
individuals with disabilities. Watch this presentation conducted by Dr. Kerri Vanderbom to learn what the GRAIDs are and how to use them.
There are over 54 million American’s living with a disability. People with a disability are a largely underserved population, often this is due to a lack of knowledge on how to reach, address, and serve these individuals. This presentation will address communication tips and proper disability etiquette for individuals with sensory, intellectual and physical disabilities. It will also briefly discuss the barriers these individuals face towards participation and how to address them. Finally, this presentation will look at the definition of inclusion and what that means for effective communication.
