Stereotypes: What they are and how to overcome them
The aim of this presentation is to bring awareness to the healthcare community about the overall impact of negative stereotypes and to provide information on ways to decrease these stereotypes through the use of mandatory trainings and educating oneself on the disability experience.
1. identify what a stereotype is and provide examples of the stereotype content model
2. identify common disability related stereotypes held by healthcare professionals and understand their impact on disabled clients, other healthcare workers, etc.
3. identify tips to accommodate blind clients and others with a disability
4. recognize the importance of educational training on disability awareness
5. identify how disabled clients and disabled OT practitioners can change the stereotypical disabled perception
Gretchen has experience providing non-formal support and training to other blind or visually impaired friends and fellow visually impaired OT students in the United States.
