Speak Up-Stay Safe: Community Health and Safety Training
Please view the following flyer announcing upcoming training sessions on community health and safety. As people with disabilities become more included in their communities, they have access to greater resources and opportunities. Increased opportunities can also bring additional risks and challenges.
Funded by The Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) and Employment First, The Center for Disability Empowerment developed the Speak Up ~ Stay Safe: Community Health and Safety Training. Sessions will be offered around Ohio for both parents/professionals and individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Topics will include the following: healthy relationships and boundaries, sexuality and dating, abuse, bullying, harassment, human trafficking, alcohol, drugs, weapons, and online safety. We encourage people to come to the training sessions to learn more about materials, resources, identifying and reporting abuse, and empowerment.
Sessions coming soon include Cincinnati (Dec 5 and 19), Findlay (Dec 6 and 16) and Dayton (Feb 7 and 21).
In addition, sessions will be held in Toledo, Akron, Athens, Portsmouth, St.Clairsville, Columbus and Delaware with locations to be announced.
We offer quality programs and coordinate available services so that people we serve may realize their dreams and actively contribute to their community.

The Fayette County Board of DD has been around since 1967. We began in the basement of a local church, serving eight children with disabilities. Today, we assist hundreds of children, adults, and families with their education, vocational training, habilitation, transportation, and service coordination needs.
