Assistive Technology & Education:
Tools for Ending the Sexual Assault Epidemic for People with I/DD

Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities face a rate of sexual assault and abuse that is at least seven times higher than those without disabilities.*

Oak Hill, with generous sponsorship from the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism and the CT Tech Act Project, is taking action against this statistic by hosting a free awareness and skill-building webinar series. Over the course of three lunch hour sessions, professionals with a variety of backgrounds will discuss the barriers and unique safety risks that individuals with autism and other disabilities face. Participants will learn strategies for prevention, response, and reporting, as well as ways to build a culture of consent that supports safe, healthy, fulfilling relationships of all kinds. Resources, including assistive technology suggestions, will be shared to offer participants next steps for collectively breaking down these barriers. Human services professionals, school teams, legal advocates, administrators, family members, and more are all invited to join the conversation.
