Disability service organization The Arc of California and ValorUS team up to improve services for survivors with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) through a Department of Justice's Office of Violence Against Women disability grant. California Advocates Leading in Engagement, Accessibility and Developmental Disability Services (C.A. LEADDS) will share their road to partnership and building a long lasting relationship. This session will provide information on the collaborative process as well as an introduction to some of the tools and products for survivors with I/DD that have come from various partnerships. There will be a brief overview of I/DD as well as the prevalence and impact of sexual violence in the I/DD community.
