Most people find that training helps them enjoy the full benefits of working with accessibility programs.

Training is most effective when geared towards the specific needs of the individual, focusing on their particular tasks and challenges. 

To make the best out of any training, spread it out over a period of weeks. This gives you opportunity to practise new skills and consolidate learning between formal coaching sessions.
