    This was an excellent and well designed course that used the NPR Series to teach the prevalence of sexual abuse of people with intellectual disabilities. I liked how the author(s) teach how BCBAs and staff members can identify, prevent, and respond to victims of such crimes. Although the topic of this course was heartbreaking, I found the information to be beneficial and feel I can use what I learned to better serve and teach others.

    Course is based on NPR investigative series. Many of the stories are heartbreaking. Course discusses actions behavior analysts can take to help prevent, detect, and respond to sexual abuse.
