OVC TTAC has a curriculum now available for supporting crime victims with disabilities. It’s a 3-day training that includes both an instructor and participant manual, PPT slides and worksheets/activities, all free of charge. Click through for a description of the course.
From the site:
This 3-day training is designed for victim service providers, advocates for people with disabilities, self-advocates, and allied professionals. Using case studies and small group discussions, participants will examine the prevalence of crime against people with disabilities, perceptions of the criminal justice system, tenets of the disabilities movement, and the impact of disabilities on daily life. Through collaborative activities participants will identify ways the various agencies, organizations, and systems can work together to better serve crime victims with disabilities.
