People with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) often go through life without receiving accurate information about sexuality, abuse prevention, and self-protection strategies. The Arc ADventures in Learning series facilitated by instructor Cynde Vaughn, MSW seeks to provide appropriate education and support to ensure that young people with IDD lead happy and fulfilling lives. Cynde has developed a comprehensive social/sexual/safety awareness curriculum utilizing nationally recognized training techniques and materials.
