NCCJD seeks to engage professionals, people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their family members to better understand criminal justice and disability-related issues and provide information on current topics of greatest interest to them. To achieve this goal, NCCJD is offering free monthly webinars from January 2014 through August 2015. Webinars will be archived and made available for viewing 2-5 business days after the live event.
NCCJD’s webinars are highly informative, easy to access and a great way to stay informed about criminal justice and disability issues. Please note all future webinars will provide closed captioning upon request. We value your feedback, and it is our goal to provide the most conducive and effective learning platform possible.

Sex Offenders with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
October 29th, 1:30-2:30 p.m. EST
The Arc is a national non-profit that provides cradle to grave services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). The Arc’s National Center on Criminal Justice and Disability™ (NCCJD) recently published a white paper and hosted a webinar on sex offenders with I/DD, and noted an overwhelming need for this information nationwide. In response to the high demand for information, NCCJD brings you an addendum and accompanying webinar, specifically identifying the problems occurring as a result of autism spectrum disorder and lack of sexual education.
