The University of Arizona Sonoran Center for Excellence in Disabilities is asking for your help with a research project about sexual violence against persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) or autism.
The project is called Untold Stories and it has two parts. Part one involves interviews. Part two is a community survey (coming soon).
Sonoran Center Affiliated Faculty Dr. Lynne Tomasa and her team are starting to schedule interviews with the following people:
1. Individuals with I/DD or autism who experienced unwanted sexual contact or behaviors and
2. Family caregivers or persons who play an important role in the life of someone who experiences unwanted sexual behaviors
If you belong to either group or know of someone who is, we encourage you to participate or share our information and help us prevent future sexual violence against people with I/DD or autism.
Participants must live in Arizona and be 18 years old and older to participate in the interviews. Those who meet the project requirements will be paid for their time with a gift card.
