Sexual Abuse Prevention and Education for Children Who Are Deaf/Hard of Hearing (Workshop 88)
The Center for Abuse Prevention and Education for the Deaf/Hard of Hearing (CAPE-D/HH) has been established with funding from the Department of Health and Human Services and is the only organization in the United States serving deaf/hard of hearing children. This presentation includes a brief history of abuse of deaf/hard of hearing children, explains the process of implementing a prevention program, and illustrates the programs CAPE-D/HH services. Its intent is to amplify the prevalence of abuse in this population, to state why this population is at such risk, and to delineate future plans to reduce the risk.
