For Parents and Guardians

Parents and guardians are a vital support system for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Guardians in Kent County reported that they need more support in order to talk about human sexuality and sexual safety with the individuals with I/DD whom they serve. WEAVE created the resources on this page to help guardians and parents. Whether an individual is exploring a new romantic relationship, has a question about sexuality, or is in an unsafe relationship, guardians and parents can be the first to respond.

The goal of this resource page is to provide information on the topic of sexual assault and the nurse examiner program to parents, guardians, and caregivers of people with I/DD to ultimately reduce the risk of sexual assault and barriers to services if sexual assault does occur.

More resources coming soon.
