Victims With Disabilities Matter: A Primer to Help Make Sure
Serving victims with disabilities can seem intimidating; it doesn't have to be that way. This session focuses on understanding accommodations and when we need to provide them. Content includes a quick review of the Americans with Disabilities Act; the definition of disability according to ADA; and a review of best practices for interacting with someone who uses a wheelchair, who is blind, who uses a service animal, and who is deaf. Educational materials include short videos (you may also use with your staff) to remind attendees of some best practices in working with victims with disabilities to insure your agency show every victim s/he matters.
