Violence against children with disabilities is a global epidemic. Based on the general statistics of the World Health Organization (WHO), children with disabilities are 2.9 times more likely to be victims of sexual abuse than children without disabilities. Often, parents do not realize the abuse is happening. Many times, the perpetrator is the child’s primary care source, a family member or someone the family or child knows. This is unacceptable! Education, advocacy and awareness are imperative for children with disabilities, to reduce the risk and impact of abuse. Our educational and training programs will provide information critical for reducing the risk of sexual abuse for children with disabilities. *** Our educational and training programs are co-written by parents, professionals, law enforcement and survivors.

Educational and Training Programs for Children with Disabilities ***

Often, children with disabilities do not realize the abuse is happening to them. Many times, the perpetrator is the child’s primary care source, a family member or someone the family or child knows. Perpetrators many times threaten children so they are afraid to tell anyone. This allows the abuse to continue and as a result, the child more than likely will suffer from extensive trauma. Education and advocacy are imperative for children with disabilities, to reduce the risk and impact of abuse. Our educational and training programs will teach children with disabilities to identify sexual abuse by providing knowledge of boundaries, body safety, safe and unsafe touching and establishing their safe circle. In addition, what to do if they have been abused and who to tell. *** Our educational and training programs are co-written by parents, professionals, law enforcement and survivors.
