    #MeToo: Sexual Violence in the I/DD Community


    Tuesday, Oct 2


    3:10pm - 4:00pm
    People with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) face greater risk of sexual victimization than people without, yet programs and services created for survivors, such as rape crisis centers and domestic violence programs, and current movements/national campaigns focused on addressing sexual violence, often leave this population out altogether. This session will provide information on current research, stories of survivors with disabilities, and promising practices that address the intersection of sexual violence and I/DD.
