The Internet is a great way to stay connected with family, friends and communities.
Being online has become a part of our daily lives, and has made it easier to connect with others, especially family members and friends who may live far away.
Support staff or other professionals have also found the Internet to be a great tool to stay connected with the people they support when they’re not able to see them face-to-face.
Just as you would protect the ones you care for and support in the real world, it is important to make sure that they are safe when participating in the online world. Both worlds can make people with developmental disabilities vulnerable. CLBC’s goal in creating this website is to educate, empower, and equip self-advocates, families and service providers with basic online safety information to help keep everyone safe online.
