Join the Nevada Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence (NCEDSV) for a virtual training. This presentation will give attendees a basic understanding of disabilities and how adolescents and young adults with developmental disabilities are targeted for abuse.

Staff from disability service organizations and other participants will receive a basic understanding of relationship abuse effecting people with developmental disabilities, its warning signs and risk factors, strategies on how to help survivors and how to offer appropriate referrals to community-based domestic and sexual violence advocacy programs.
