Personal SPACE Program
A Gender Violence Prevention Program for Women
Women with developmental disabilities are at greater risk for abuse and violence. The Arc Maryland received a Projects of National Significance Grant from the Administration on Developmental Disabilities of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to develop a gender violence prevention curriculum for women with developmental disabilities. The curriculum—The Personal SPACE Program—was developed by women with developmental disabilities, family members, and professionals in the fields of developmental disabilities, sex education, counseling, violence prevention, training, and evaluation.
The curriculum is now available for download here
