It’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month! 

Sometimes parents and caregivers of children with disabilities are subject to violence at the hands of their own children.  Regardless of the intent of the child the struggles many families face, namely violence within their own homes, is not included in the conversation our country has about domestic violence.   

Child to Parent Violence (CPV) is a very real problem and it is critical that legislators hear from families and include CPV in the national domestic violence conversation.  Feel free to send in your own letter or simply send the letter below to your local, regional, and national lawmakers.
