Identifying and Preventing Abuse of People with Developmental Disabilities

February 4 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm EST

Free

Abuse and exploitation are constant dangers for people with developmental disabilities.  According to a recent study, they are four to ten times more likely to be abused than their peers without disabilities.  In this workshop, adults with developmental disabilities and their families will learn what abuse is, what the signs of abuse are, what to do if you or a loved one has experienced abuse and what steps can be taken to reduce the risk of abuse.

The seminar is free and open to the community.  Presented by Joshua’s Path at Goodman JFS of Broward County.  The Joshua’s Path program supports, educates and empowers adults with developmental disabilities, their parents, siblings and other caregivers by providing free consultations, a searchable website, resources and educational seminars.

For more information, please contact Sharlene Glassman, Joshua’s Path Caregiver Support and Education Manager, at 954-909-0822 or email sglassman@jfsbroward.org.
