AAIDD Online Learning: Abuse and Neglect of Individuals with I/DD

  • Dates: 04 – 04 Jul, 2016
AAIDD Online Learning Course:
Abuse and Neglect of Individuals with I/DD

Abuse, neglect, and exploitation are serious issues in the systems of support for people with disabilities. Recent studies suggest there is an alarmingly high rate of physical abuse, neglect, and sexual victimization among those with intellectual and developmental disabilities, yet only a tiny fraction of these are reported. Emotional or mental abuse is also widespread. This course is for direct support staff who provide support to individuals with disabilities. It will teach you how to recognize signs of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation in a variety of situations. You will learn how to respond to an allegation of maltreatment, practice responding to incidents you may see first-hand, and find out what you can do to prevent abuse. Although each state has different reporting requirements and definitions, you will also learn some basic principles of reporting. In several real-life scenarios, you can prove your competency in this area and meet the course learning objectives.
