One of the best ways to stay safe is to maintain an ongoing open dialogue about what you are doing on the internet with someone you trust.This could be a parent, other family member, a staff, a friend or a volunteer.
There are many tools available that can equalize communication for a person with a disability.
Helpful sources of information include; Do: Remind your children that any people they only know through the internet (and not in the real world) may not be who they say they are.
Do: Make it clear to them that you will occasionally check what sites they are using and will also sometimes ask questions to make sure they know the person they're messaging.
Now, there are certain rules to follow when striking up a conversation with strangers online.
It’s important to keep these in mind; remember safety always comes first!
