Sexual Exploitation of Children with Learning Disabilities and Difficulties – Online

By nwg at

Sexual Exploitation of Children with Learning Disabilities and Difficulties

A young person’s ability to understand risks, respond to social cues, make sense of consent and relationships can be difficult for them. This can lead to them being labelled as challenging and this label prevents behaviours being seen as a form of communication.

This course seeks to develop our knowledge and awareness of how difficulties and challenges in learning affect how young people make sense of and respond to risk. Many young people do not have a specific diagnosis and whilst attending mainstream schools are also having to cope with a variety of complex emotional and health needs.

The NWG Network and the Ann Craft Trust have worked together in partnership to produce a course where delegates have the opportunity to develop their practical and communication skills in order for interventions around the complexities of Child Sexual Exploitation to be more effective when supporting young people whether they have a diagnosis or not.

It was at ChildLine she developed her child centred, trauma informed approach to working alongside young people.
