A team of four senior Kidpower instructors – with combined teaching experience of 100+ years! – will be sharing ways to help people with communication challenges be safe from bullying, abuse, harassment, and harm.

Plus, they’ll give hands-on, tailored guidance for using the free Safetypowers resource – a large and growing digital treasure box full of videos, skills guides, and other resources waiting for you just a few clicks away!

Enroll now – and please share widely with your colleagues, friends, family members, service providers, and others! We want to be sure all adults committed to the safety of people with disabilities and other life challenges that affect communication have the opportunity to join!
