09 May Serving Students with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, Part II
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: What ‘Enough is Enough’ Providers Need to Know 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.
Part II: Practical Applications – What ‘Enough is Enough’ Providers Need To Do 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.
