It is critical that we actively consider how to adapt our primary prevention trainings, as well as our direct service work, to be inclusive and accessible to neuro-divergent communities. This event is Part II of a two-part webinar series intended to educate providers on working with communities with ID/DD.

 

Part I answered foundational questions, including:

  • What is intellectual/developmental disability and how might it present?
  • Myths and facts about sexuality and this community,
  • Laws surrounding consent within this population.

Catch up on Part I here.

 

Part II will address:

  • Recommendations for serving students with ID/DD in the college setting,
  • Successful methods for working with this population in a prevention context,
  • What to do when a sexual assault occurs to someone in this community.

Register to attend Part II here.

 

Presented by the New York State Training and Technical Assistance Center: the NYC Alliance Against Sexual Assault and the NYS Coalition Against Sexual Assault, in collaboration with the NYS Department of Health.
