Lunch & Learn: Talk To Your Customers With Disabilities The Right Way

Posted by on January 13, 2014 - 1 Comment

We’ve all walked into a retail store, government office or corporate environment and felt we weren’t receiving the best service. We’ve also had co-workers say inappropriate and/or offensive statements simply because they did not know it was offensive or inappropriate. Both of these situations can create an awkward environment for all involved. For many customers with disabilities these instances occur more often than most of us are willing to admit.

Our Lunch and Learn (Brown Bag) events offer businesses the opportunity to learn the proper way of communicating with customers and co-workers with disabilities. Have questions? Bring them!

This is a better way to talk to our bosses and co workers also. When people who comes in to any where like a book store. The people who will learn how to talk to a person who has a *Disability will be great. like for me it is not to hard to talk to my boss and co-workers.
