Special Topics: Afterschool , Advanced Specialized Care ,
Sponsor: Prevent Child Abuse Vermont
Instructor: Marcie Hambrick

Children with disabilities are at a higher risk of child sexual abuse than their peers, but prevention is possible! Parents and professionals alike want to create safe environments for this important group of children. Participants will: a) understand the higher prevalence of child sexual abuse among children with disabilities b) learn the specific challenges that these children experience that may raise risk c) strategize organizational policies and practices as well as family norms that will better protect this vulnerable group of children. Please join us to learn how to keep children with disabilities safe at school, at home, in youth serving organizations, in residential settings, and in the neighborhood. This program is useful for teachers, special education teachers, paraprofessionals, early childhood educators, and after school professionals. * 2 Continuing Education Credits are available for Vermont Social Workers, Vermont Allied Mental Health Professionals, Vermont Behavior Analysts, Vermont Psychoanalysts, Vermont Psychological Examiners, and Vermont Alcohol & Drug Abuse Counselors.
