OUR UNIQUE PORTFOLIO OF SERVICES FOR EMPLOYERS & TRAINING AUTHORITIES
Training Which We Provide For Employers To Enable Them To Provide Equal Employment Opportunities & Design A Code Of Practice:
This training is provided where visually impaired or blind people may be customers or employee's of an organisation. For example, if a visually impaired or blind person comes into your restaurant, if your assistance is required, you will be able to offer this assistance in a competent manner so as to cause no embarrassment to the customer or yourself.
This training course would be run over a 6 month period. Participants would acquire the skills to communicate through sign language with a person who has a hearing disability.
It is not necessary to be able to read Braille in order to provide print in a Braille format, however Braille is used as a means of communication by many blind people. Training can take a lot of hard work and time depending on the tuition and the ability of the person who is learning Braille.
Most visually impaired or blind people use a Braille format as opposed to print when communicating. For example, we at D.C.S will convert Restaurant menus, invoices, pay-slips etc to the Braille format.
Employers who have no disabled person in their organisation but wish to do so may request DCS to design a code of best practice. This code of best practice would provide the organisation in question with the relevant information when employing a person with a disability. i.e.:
For example, if a bank wishes to make their premises totally accessible for all persons, we at D.C.S would go to their premises, identify the hazards, (steps, narrow doors etc) and then make recommendations to address these problems.
If an organisation employs a disabled person or if an existing member of staff acquires a disability, we at DCS would be able to provide advice on adaptive technology and on site Disability Equality Training if required. For example, a voice synthesiser attached to a computer for use by a visually impaired or blind person.
