From 14-25th March, 2016 CAE Validus again carried out the informative workshops for cadets of the Police Academy. These workshops are a continuation of successful cooperation from last year and had a focus on invisible disability as well as on efficient communication.
The role-play exercise was carried out apart from the presentations and films, in which everyday situations of getting citizens into contact with policemen were simulated and learned how to adjust the way we communicate to people with invisible disabilities. The exercise proved to be fun and useful for all participants.
Cadets have expressed the interest and sensibility on the subject and have opened a number of questions which also confirms how much these workshops are needed in order they effectively and appropriately communicate to people with disabilities in their future work.
