This morning the Activ Library hosted a Body Safety and Abuse Prevention workshop for parents and carers. Presented by Holly-ann Martin, the founder of Safe4Kids the workshops are coordinated by Developmental Disability WA.
Did you know, children with a disability are more at risk of abuse than other children? The workshops explore Protective Behaviour Concepts which include comfortable and uncomfortable feelings, cyber safety, early warning signs and a whole lot more. Furthermore, the workshops arm parents with the knowledge on what tried and true steps to take in the vent a situation occurred. It was a fantastic and informative morning for all who came.
