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 approach, Take Another LooK at Disability (TALK: Disability) encourages public health administrators and staff to "take another look" at their programs, considering how to make them more inclusive and accessible. TALK: Disability is tailored to meet programs where they are at with their goals and objectives, and consists of three primary components:
A planning meeting is scheduled to exchange program information and discuss opportunities to collaborate.
An informal review considers aspects of the program’s general curriculum, recruitment strategies, meeting environments, printed materials, websites, and marketing outputs.
Based on the assessment, DPH offers technical assistance to programs to adapt, adjust, or supplement activities and materials as needed.
