Violence in the Lives of People With Disabilities: Emerging Issues and Solutions for 2015 and Beyond

In 2014, the National Crime Victim Survey revealed that people with disabilities face a much greater risk of being victimized compared to those without disabilities (the rate of violent victimization for people with disabilities is nearly three times the rate compared to those without disabilities). This webinar addresses emerging issues in the field with a panel of experts and advocates covering topics like:

  • Using trauma-informed care principles when working with victims with intellectual/developmental disabilities (IDD)
  • Assisting crime victims with complex communication needs
  • Supporting victims with specific types of disabilities such as Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASDs)
  • Responding to bullying of students with disabilities
  • Supporting people with disabilities in speaking out against violence.

Join us for this thought-provoking and empowering webinar, and find out how you can reduce violence in the lives of people with disabilities.
