Self-Advocates and Researchers Sharing Leadership on the Development of a Violence Prevention Program

safety project th

People with intellectual disabilities (ID) are at high risk for abuse. Unique risks include:

  • Perception of being easy targets for victimization
  • Communication barriers
  • Difficulty identifying treatment as abusive, reporting abuse, and recognizing abuse as a crime
  • Lack of education about safety from abuse

There is a need for the development and systematic evaluation of a safety program for people with ID.
