A leader in disability education.
Cortree has used our expertise to design and develop several disability awareness and client services elearning courses. Look to us for professional training that is client-centered, practical and positions your business as leaders in the accessibility movement.
Disability Awareness: Removing Barriers
Cortree’s Disability Awareness elearning course is designed to provide learners with the knowledge and confidence to work and thrive alongside people living with disabilities. Along with providing introduction to what constitutes a disability, the course introduces learners to common misperceptions and stereotypes through use of video-based learning exercises and reflective learning. The course provides learners the opportunity to explore their own perception of disability and evolve those perceptions, to help foster a more inclusive work environment (and world).

Providing Service to People with Disabilities (AODA): An Accessible World
One in seven Canadians lives with a disability. Some disabilities are visible, while some aren’t. Different disabilities call for different technical and social solutions, to help remove barriers, and allow people living with disabilities to lead full and rewarding lives and contribute to the world around us as everyone else has the opportunity to do.

Both The Disability Awareness and Working with People with Disabilities courses offered by Cortree through Spinal Cord Injury Ontario, provided helpful and practical information and tips on how to work with people with disabilities while exploring what it means to have a disability. I feel this training better prepared me to work in a clinical setting with clients with varying levels of abilities and I am grateful for the training experience. I thoroughly enjoyed both training courses and highly recommend them to anyone living or working with people with disabilities.
