Do you wonder whether some of your clients might have some type of disability? With 83% of women with developmental disabilities experiencing sexual assault and, of that number, more than 50% experiencing sexual assault 10+ times, the answer should be YES, some of your clients DO have a disability! Held during Disabilities Awareness Month, this webinar will define intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and will talk about how knowing that difference can matter to you. The webinar will explain the targeting of people with I/DD, as well as what makes victims with I/DD different from most other victims of sexual assault.
