Disability Inclusion in Adult Protective Services: Past, Present, and Future

A four-part webinar series hosted by the National Adult Protective Services Association (NAPSA), The Arc’s National Center on Criminal Justice and Disability, The Board Resource Center, Living Well, and Wisconsin Board for People With Developmental Disabilities

We’re excited to announce a four-part webinar series that will dive into the evolution of the adult protective services (APS) system and the inclusion of older adults and people with disabilities in investigations of abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation. It is a rare opportunity to hear from experts in the field about how we can take our system from where it began into a brighter future that recognizes and protects both older adults and people with disabilities.
