About This Webinar

Individuals with IDD are at a much higher risk of abuse than the general population. While all providers are required to be trained on how to identify abuse within this community, it can be difficult to determine strategies that can help prevent abuse from occurring or from happening again.

Watch this on-demand webinar to hear Nellie Galindo, MSW, MSPH, discuss methods and best practices that IDD organizations can employ to help prevent abuse of individuals with IDD.

In this session, you’ll learn the following:

  • Current statistics for rates of abuse of people with disabilities
  • Factors that place people with IDD at risk for abuse
  • Methods IDD organizations and teams can implement to reduce the risk of abuse
