BQIS training: Sexual violence and disability

In partnership with the Indiana Coalition to End Sexual Assault and Human Trafficking, the Bureau of Quality Improvement Services is offering a web-based learning opportunity about sexual violence and disability.

According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, National Crime Victimization Survey, Special Tabulation, 2011-2015, people with intellectual disabilities — women and men — are the victims of sexual assaults at rates more than seven times those for people without disabilities.

Webinar participants will learn more about:

  • Sexual assault and violence
  • Confidentiality and reporting
  • How to support someone who has disclosed information to you
  • Resources available to survivors.

Providers, direct support professionals, families and self-advocates are welcome to attend.

The learning opportunity will take place on Thursday, June 3, 2021, from 10 – 11:30 a.m. EDT. There is no charge to attend. Please register here:

A link to the live webinar will be provided after registration. The webinar will also be recorded and available to view later. If you have any questions regarding this, please contact BQIS at

We look forward to continuing to educate and inspire individuals to live, love, learn, work, play and pursue their dreams!
