LaconiaPanel discussion

It’s not something that anyone likes to talk about, but the hard truth is that people who experience an intellectual disability are victimized more often than those without a disability. A year-long investigation by National Public Radio found that people with intellectual disabilities are sexually assaulted at a rate seven times higher than those without disabilities. To shed light on this topic and start discussing ways to arm families, caregivers, educators and individuals themselves with the information they need to be safe and reverse this trend, Lakes Region Community Services is hosting a panel discussion: “D.E.N.I.A.L – Disability Education Neglects to Include All Life Choices” on May 7 at 6:30 p.m. at the LRCS Main Office, 719 N. Main St., Laconia. “These statistics are an unfortunate reality,” said Lakes Region Community Services President & CEO Rebecca L. Bryant. “Some parents and caregivers avoid topics around sexual activity and sexual abuse because they don’t know how to address the subject, are uncomfortable, and believe their loved one will not understand. The reason for this panel discussion is to bring together experts in the community who will provide vital information, answer questions and help cut through that natural resistance to meet this issue head on.” Topics to be covered and presenters include: Health Education with Christine Woodland, a health educator at Moultonborough Academy; Friendship & Dating with Dr. Laurie Guidry, and more. Please RSVP to Sarah Cadorette, 581-1528 or sarah.cadorette@lrcs.org.
