This abuse and neglect course is not only about recognizing and reporting but a call to action. In this class the student will learn about the harsh realities of abuse, neglect and exploitation for people with developmental disabilities. Statistics are provided that will leave the learner shocked at the prevalence of abuse amongst the people we support. Photographs that depict the results of mistreatment leave the learner with no other option but to commit to take a stand and speak up. The class provides you with practical tools and tips on how to respect a person’s space even when more personal support is necessary. You will gain an understanding about the importance of recognizing behavioral patterns that not only suggest physical abuse but environmental and emotional as well. After completing the course the Direct Support Professional is inspired to make it known that the people they support are safe in their presence!

Informative & Shocking Despite Being "Seasoned"
Sep 27, 2022
Gained a lot of new knowledge to add to what I've acquired over the years. This was the most honest look I've had in regards to the systems we have in place. It spent a good portion of time explaining why these systems exist, which was hard to digest, but necessary. I think that is what separates this one from others I've had. It made sure everybody understands why we advocate.

Class was informative but
Sep 27, 2022
I got a lot of information with the class but I feel like a lot of topics were one sided. Some topics I feel like needed to be explained a little more. Situations and certain things come into determining what is going on. Me and my wife had issues with dcs in the past of negligent claims and kept getting harrased by them because of the same neighbors. Even the sibling thing I touched on felt very one sided and felt it needed a little more context.
