Do you know someone with a disability who struggles with understanding relationships and boundaries?
Lack of Knowledge
Individuals with I/DD often struggle with relating to others due to a lack of awareness of social boundaries and appropriate interactions.
Individuals with I/DD are at much higher risk for sexual abuse and coercion. Concepts regarding assertiveness, self-protection and bodily autonomy are often missed in the school setting.
Education is the key for all individuals to lead healthy and happy lives. Promoting social autonomy and safe relationships through education can really make a difference in the lives of people with I/DD.
Our caregiver training provides you with 12 self-paced video modules (2 hours of material) which gives a broad overview of each type of relationship, the social boundaries for each type of relationship, and protective factors we teach our students to reduce the risk of sexual abuse.
IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO START!
Building a solid foundation for understanding social-sexual topics is critical for people with disabilities. No matter what age they are, this information is invaluable for their health and safety.
Information about relationships and social boundaries are often missed in the learning environment. As children and teens grow their social world will change many times. Even as adults, our social interactions are always evolving. Individuals of all ages can benefit from this information to help them create healthy and safe connections with others and navigate their community with confidence.
