Designed to be used by individuals and as part of conversations and training on the subject of internet safety, the free video aims to help adults with learning disabilities have a good digital life. The film tackles issues such as not sharing or watching things which are inappropriate or unpleasant, keeping personal information private, and how to ask for help.
Pause points are included in the film, indicated by pause icons that appear in the corner of the screen, to highlight areas that may need further explanation or discussion.
Nick Gant, Sustainable Communities Lead at the University of Brighton, said: “Adults with learning difficulties and autism can be particularly vulnerable to online risk, from financial scams to abuse and exploitation. By combining their experiences in partnership with those offering other expertise, we have produced a film that is authentic, relevant and inclusive.
