Justice for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Abstract: This is part 1 of 18 in a series of videos from the National Goals in Research, Policy, and Practice meeting. The meeting aimed to advance a research agenda that influences policy and practice for and with people who have intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). Speaker discusses the criminal justice system and the inequality of treatment between individuals with I/DD and individuals without disabilities, along with how individuals with I/DD are believed or not believed, and treated differently depending if they are the victim or the accused. She also talks about law enforcement officers interacting with individuals with I/DD and how to handle the cases appropriately; sexuality; and how professionals in the disability world can educate students, teachers, and parents so they don’t unintentionally create victims and offenders.
