Clients with disabilities who experience domestic violence are especially vulnerable, and need specialised assistance.
Our presenter for this webinar is Leona Berrie, Project Manager from WWILD – Sexual Violence Prevention Association Inc. WWILD provides free counselling and support groups for people with intellectual disabilities who are survivors of crime or exploitation.
In this webinar Leona covers:
Intersections between disability and gendered violence/domestic violence;
Common communication issues; and
Strategies to mitigate communication issues and improve accessibility (it’s not just about ramps and lifts!).
