Om I Can Get Through It
This book tells the story of a woman with learning disabilities. She is attacked by a man. We learn what happens to her and how she gets help.Sadly, a lot of people are sexually abused, perhaps as many as 1,500 every year just in the UK. It can happen anywhere - in someone's home, in a hostel or residential home, at a day centre or a social club, on transport or wherever people with learning disabilities are. Typically the abuse is by someone known to the victim, and it is not an isolated incident. The book shows that it is possible to find help and 'get through it'.I Can Get Through It is one of the Books Beyond Words series of books that tell stories in pictures to help people with intellectual disabilities (sometimes called learning disabilities) and communication difficulties to explore and understand their own experiences.Guidelines are provided (as text at the back) for carers and supporters, health and other professionals who provide support to people with intellectual disabilities. There is also a suggested storyline and recommended helpful organisations and further resources.
