Look to us for professional training that is client-centered, practical and positions your business as leaders in the accessibility movement.

Curriculum Design

We offer curriculum design services across various industry sectors to help you translate your learning objectives into specific plans and actions. Our approach focuses on the knowledge, skills and attitudes learners will develop through each learning experience. A unique feature of the design process we offer is critical feedback on course design with people with disabilities – your clients, staff and customers – to ensure it resonates and achieves the desired outcomes.

Consulting

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) outlines requirements which organizations in Ontario must follow to remove barriers and bring about full accessibility for people with disabilities by 2025. The AODA is made up of standards in Customer Service, Information and Communication, Employment, Transportation and Design of Public Spaces. Standards are in development for Health and Education. We offer consulting and policy review to help you ensure your policies, systems and training comply with AODA standards.

Thoughts on SCIO Corporate Training

The online Disability Awareness Training was an insightful session that provided a greater understanding of both visible and invisible disabilities, including stories and experiences which further enhanced the learning. The online training was a great start in raising awareness and starting the dialogue on visible and invisible disabilities, and accommodations at work and outside of work. Overall, the training reminded us of each individual’s responsibilities toward people with invisible and visible disabilities: Familiarize Yourself, Make Your Needs Known, Accommodation is a Partnership, and Accommodation Obligation is Ongoing.
