Many sexual assault service professionals feel unprepared when youth with intellectual disabilities (ID) participate in prevention groups. However, we should expect to see more youth with ID in such groups because of the current focus on inclusion in the public-school system.
This webinar will provide information and resources to assist the S/A professional to feel more confident in meaningfully including and supporting a prevention group participant with ID.
- To address common concerns group leaders may have regarding youth with ID.
- To increase comfort with, and confidence of, S/A professionals in leading prevention groups that include people with IDD.
- To provide specific information on successful inclusion.
- To answer questions and concerns of webinar participants.
