Advocates Against Abuse Helpers partner with the Trainer to help them deliver the course in whatever capacity the Trainer needs.
Who would make a good Helper?
- A person within the role of direct support with people who have an intellectual disability
- Confidence in the Trainer’s ability to teach
- Willing to develop a positive relationship with all other participants in the program
- Motivates and commits to supporting the Trainer in their work
- Flexible in their schedule which allows them to help the Trainer before and during sessions
- Able to provide help without dominating, controlling or leading the situation
“Watching people with an intellectual disability teach others is a true testament to their abilities! Watching the trainers “come alive” as they teach others about abuse prevention is inspiring and exciting!”
- Sheri Franklin, AAA Helper
