Disability Inclusion Program (DIP)

Easterseals Colorado is thrilled to offer the Disability Inclusion Program (DIP). Through Disability Etiquette Trainings and Business Consultations, we help businesses and organizations better understand the disability system and how to support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) in the community and workplace.

Disability Etiquette Trainings

Inclusive business practices benefit everyone. Our Disability Etiquette Training helps build awareness and reduce stigma surrounding people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Easterseals Colorado works with businesses, clubs and organizations on a variety of training options to encourage a more welcoming and inclusive culture and environment. We can provide trainings virtually or in person at your location.

Training Options:

  • Lunch & Learn - This introductory training, designed to be held over the lunch hour, will provide an overview of disability etiquette.
  • Half-Day Training - A more in-depth and interactive training tailored to meet the specific needs of your business, club or organization.
  • Business Consultation - This multi-day training will cover the value and benefits of hiring individuals with I/DD, discuss hiring practices, tax benefits, job coaching services, and address any concerns an employer may have regarding making their workplace more inclusive, accessible, and supportive to people with disabilities.
  • Innovative Networking - An Easterseals Colorado facilitated opportunity for businesses to work together to share their experiences, successes, challenges and implement change.
