People with disabilities experience abuse more frequently than their peers without disabilities. The Alberti Center for Bullying Abuse Prevention has secured two grants over the past five years from the New York State Developmental Disabilities Planning Council. The first grant explored bullying abuse of people with disabilities (when, where, how, and why it's happening). The current grant funded the development of a multi-media website to be used as an educational resource to help prevent abuse of people with disabilities. This new website is a clearinghouse of authoritative resources on abuse, covering prevention, intervention, and online support. This colloquium will present an overview of the history of the project, development of the website, accessibility features and the resources it includes.
