Community Safety Programs For Persons With Physical And Developmental Disabilities

Given the frequency of victimization among this population (90% of persons with disabilities will be abused in their lifetime), safety and awareness training education is of the utmost importance. Rather than viewing disabilities as impairments, GET SAFE trainers encourage their students to work with their abilities to make them stronger and safer.

Presented in a fun, interactive style, training uses props, realistic scenarios and interactive activities, simple and appropriate language and examples, and repetition of key ideas to make this training stick.

This program is fully customizable based on a group’s needs. Topics can include:

  • Self-advocacy skills
  • Self-defense vs. fighting
  • Home, transportation and school safety
  • Interacting with law enforcement
  • Warning signs of abuse/tricks & lures
  • Healthy relationships
  • Bullying Prevention & Intervention
  • Phone/Internet Safety
  • Simple Escape/Defense Techniques
  • Safety Tool Options (canes, wheelchairs, etc.)
