02 Apr Serving Students with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, Part I
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 addresses:
- 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.
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.
