Take Another Look at Disability
DPH provides training and support to public health programs to ensure their efforts reach and include people with intellectual disabilities and mobility limitations. Our technical assistance encourages public health administrators and staff to "take another look" at their programs and dissemination products, considering how to make them more inclusive and accessible. DPH's technical assistance is free, tailored to meet programs where they are at with their goals and objectives, and consists of three primary components:
Connect with us by email, phone, or an in-person meeting to discuss the needs and objectives of your program or dissemination product.
We assess the inclusiveness of your program’s general curriculum, recruitment strategies, meeting environments, printed materials, websites, and marketing outputs.
We then provide feedback and suggestions regarding best practices to adapt, adjust, or supplement activities and materials.
