Give this great blog article, by Abigail Budd, a read! It shares her experiences as a disabled person. Inspired by Scope’s “End the Awkward” campaign, this article rightfully points out the ‘avoidance’ attitude of the public, rather than a negative one.
Here at Decibels, we agree that there needs be more deaf and disability awareness to #EndtheAwkwardness!! http://www.scope.org.uk/awkward
Budd tells an interesting and positive story of her interviewing experience but recognises that not all disabled people are fortune enough to have such a story to tell.
Decibels are hoping to offer, in the near future, an interview preparation workshop. It will aim to empower deaf and disabled people, using theatre and role play to build confidence and skills! Watch this space!!
