Abuse Prevention

Individuals with disabilities are at far greater risk for abuse of all kinds than people without disabilities.  We believe people with disabilities must be free from abuse, neglect or any kind of mistreatment. The Arc provides training for self-advocates and those who support them, plus a wealth of online and print resources.



Relationships, Sexuality, and Dating Classes

The Arc’s Relationships, Sexuality, and Dating classes are curriculum-based classes that offer people with intellectual and developmental disabilities a wide-range of accessible information about healthy relationships and sexuality. 


Designed for and by people with developmental disabilities, these sessions use a groundbreaking and accessible curriculum developed by The Green Mountain Self-Advocates and Planned Parenthood of Northern New England. In the spirit of “nothing about us without us” people with developmental disabilities played an active role in the creation of this curriculum and all sessions are led by a 2-person teaching team which includes a self-advocate with a disability and an Arc Advocate.
