Podcast/Vodcast E-newsletter

The Arc of Aurora’s training and education program THINK+change produces quarterly vodcasts and podcasts. Each quarter we discuss topics that improve knowledge, attitude, and behavior to ultimately improve the quality of life for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), their families, and the professionals in their lives.

Victimization and People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD)
Two people holding hands
People with IDD are victims of crime at a substantially higher rate than the general public, which impacts their ability to safely live in many community settings. This 3-part podcast/vodcast series reviews victimization statistics, unique crimes against people with disabilities, and how to support victims with disabilities.

  • Episode 1: Overview – reviews mandatory reporting, the difference between offender and victim in the criminal justice system, legal supports, and protections.
  • Episode 2: Pathways to Justice – reviews forensic interviewing, hearsay exception, ADA accommodations and access, victim advocacy, and emerging as a survivor.
  • Episode 3: Victim Advocacy and Support, with special guest Brie Franklin from Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault (CCASA) – reviews the differences between private and public-funded victims’ advocates, accessing victim’s services, and what victims services look like for people with IDD.
