Disability Awareness Training with Stacey Stockwell

Stacey is the owner of Stacey Stockwell Training Ltd, which provides Disability Awareness training courses to companies and organisations throughout the UK. She is a Musical Theatre/Performance Signer, and a DeafBlind Communicator-Guide – which is a physical lead and also an interpreter for all categories of DeafBlind people. She has a diploma in Autism Awareness and has been training in almost all aspects of Disability Awareness, including Mental Health, Autism and Dementia, for over 20 years.

Her training style and presentations are upbeat and often humorous, which she feels enables her to engage with a wide variety of people from all walks of life. The messages she delivers are interlaced with real-life scenarios which help people relate to them on a personal level and bring the subject of disability closer to home. She specialises in removing some of the many misconceptions surrounding disability, giving her delegates the tools to communicate and interact with disabled people in the right way, and most importantly, the confidence to do so.

Stacey is passionate about providing accessibility for many different types of shows and performances in order that members of the Deaf and Deafblind community can enjoy them, and she loves the challenge of interpreting different types of arts and music. She specialises in Musical Theatre and is the resident Signer at the Reading Hexagon Theatre where she has signed for some hit musicals including Grease, Hairspray, Sister Act, FAME and Spamalot. Up until very recently she was also a member of the UK Festival Interpreting Team and has signed for some major bands including; Fall Out Boy, EMINEM and Bastille.

Join her on campus as she takes you through a “whirlwind tour” of the Equality Act and where we are right now in terms of Disability in the UK. She’ll also cover the rules of Effective Communication and teach you how to communicate with Deaf people in the right way 😊
