Successfully Investigating Sexual Assault Against People with Disabilities

This training module is written from a law enforcement perspective, providing information and guidance for first responders as well as investigators and even prosecutors. However, it is intended to be equally helpful for others whose work intersects with the criminal justice system, to ensure that people with disabilities who are victimized have equal access to information, programs, and services – and that they are treated with fairness, compassion, and respect.

Responding to Survivors with Autism Spectrum Disorders

The National Sexual Violence Resource Center created a guide for sexual assault advocates to respond to survivors with autism spectrum disorders. Although this guide is intended for advocates, professionals from other disciplines can benefit from the information included on the characteristics of autism, communication techniques, connecting with caregivers, accommodations, and safety planning.
