‘Safer, Smarter Special Needs Families Workshop’ planned for Nov. 1


Special to the
Opelika Observer

Special needs families will have the opportunity to learn information on how to keep their family members safe during the “Safer, Smarter Special Needs Families Workshop” slated for Nov. 1.
The Opelika Observer and the Autism Society of Alabama will be hosting autism safety specialist Luanne Helms to offer a insightful and educational workshop discussing how to keep their loved ones safe.
This workshop will discuss crucial topics to encourage awareness and prevent sexual abuse. Individuals with developmental disabilities are 3-7 times more likely to be abused than their typical peers. The training will give parents knowledge of prevalence, how to avoid and report these unfortunate situations.
This event begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Collaboration Station in downtown Opelika and will have limited seating.
It is open to parents and educators. RSVP to helmslu@gmail.com.
