Help us spread disability-friendliness here at home — Jan 19 or Jan 22

You have two more chances this month to help
Access 4 All Spokane
spread disability
friendliness across Spokane County.

“Making Welcome” is Access 4 All Spokane’s 3-hour interactive session on how to interact confidently with people that have disabilities, particularly in customer service situations.

The class is FREE! We’ll bring snacks, cool water, hot coffee and maybe even some cocoa. So you can just relax and join our conversation.

Jan. 19 (Friday) 6pm-9pm; West Central Community Center, Newton Lounge (1603 N. Belt); OR
Jan. 22 (Monday) 8am-11am; St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Rm. # 200 (711 S. Cowley)

* You might be surprised at the number of people with disabilities (tens of thousands, really) who live, work, learn, worship, play, shop, dine and spend their money in our area.
* You’ll learn why many people feel ‘awkward’ when interacting with customers that have disabilities.
* We’ll discuss how disability-friendly customer service is a “win-win” for customers, visitors, business, public services, and our entire community.
* And you’ll leave with the nuts & bolts about disability-aware etiquette, respectful language, and customer service tips — from local experts who really know their stuff.
