Community Autism Resources presents:
A Conversation About Sexual Abuse Prevention and Internet Safety
Our Speaker will be Andrea Souza from the Children’s Advocacy Center
Wednesday Evening, September 22nd, 6:15 – 7:15 pm, Via Zoom
Description: Most parents do not think twice about teaching their children how to cross the street safely. Teaching children how to keep their bodies safe from sexual abuse should be just as natural. This session empowers caregivers with the knowledge and tools needed to begin this difficult conversation. Topics include: Abuse statistics, facts/myths, caretaker choices, how to talk to your child (including proper terms for private body parts), signs and symptoms of child abuse, and how to respond to a disclosure or suspected abuse. She will also cover Digital Responsibility for Youth - Use of technology is prevalent in our culture today, especially with our youth. Participants will learn ways to keep their children safe on the internet and the importance of monitoring youth when using technology in an effort to reduce dangers to youth online.
