This training provides a comprehensive introduction to the CRPD. It discusses the background and the development of the convention, looking at disability from a human rights context. It then guides participants in detail through the rights enshrined in the Convention, the practicalities of upholding these rights and how to make a complaint under the CRPD.
This course is essential for anyone working with people with intellectual disability. We explore the myths and facts surrounding sexual assault and examine the reasons why men and women with intellectual disability experience much higher rates of sexual assault than people without disability.
