Inclusive Communication Module

Based on the Disability Orientation, the Inclusive Communication Module is dynamic and engaging. The content is divided into three chapters of 15-20 minutes each, and contains examples from over 30 country offices. Upon completion of the module, it is expected that participants will be able to: use appropriate terminology when communicating about children with disabilities; confidently interact with persons with disabilities;  and develop materials and organize meetings that are inclusive of and accessible to people with disabilities.

The videos have several accessibility features: Sign Language interpretation (SL), Audio Description (AD) and Closed Captioning (CC).

Part 1 of the Inclusive Communication Module gives a background to the Convention on the Rights of Person with Disabilities (CRPD) and informs about recommended approaches and terminology to use when communicating about disability.  

Part 2 of the Inclusive Communication Module focuses on the importance of engagement and meaningful participation of people with disabilities in all communications material. 

Part 3 of the Inclusive Communication Module provides practical guidance on how to promote accessibility in communications and events.
