    Improved Students Accounts Offer a Strong Classroom Tool

    We've been working hard to make it easier for you to create, manage, and share DCMP accounts for your students. We've streamlined the process of creating and managing student accounts. Assigning videos to students is now more intuitive. Media permissions can be assigned quickly to individuals and groups, or Classes, that you create. Our student account instructions and video tutorial make it easy as pie to get started.

    Child Abuse Prevention Month

    Each year, there are nearly three million reports of child abuse and neglect. We also know that the risk of violence to children with disabilities is routinely three to four times higher than that of non-disabled children. Your awareness of this terrible problem will grow through views of DCMP resources such as: 1) A Terrible Secret. Young Nari has a terrible secret she can't tell anyone. Her drawings in art class of dark images and scary faces are of concern to her teacher, who senses what might be wrong; 2) The Eleventh Commandment. In this music video, Collin Raye addresses the heartbreaking reality of child abuse; and 3) Talk to Me. One in six victims of sexual assault is under the age of twelve. Preteen and teen victims are often silenced by fear, shame, guilt, and threats of reprisal.
