Serving Students with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (Part I)

Campus, Disability, Enough Is Enough
About This Project


Presented by the New York State Training and Technical Assistance Center, a collaboration between the New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault, the New York State Coalition Against Sexual Assault, and the New York State Department of Health.

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 resource is Part I of a two-part webinar series intended to educate providers on working with communities with ID/DD.


Part I answers 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.


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.
