Transforming Crisis Response into Long-Term Solutions

Transforming Crisis Response into Long-Term Solutions

Barrier Free Living is a domestic violence agency in New York City that serves people with disabilities and those who are D/deaf. According to the World Health Organization, people with disabilities are 1.5 times more likely to be a victim of violence than those without a disability, while those with mental health conditions are at nearly four times the risk of experiencing violence. During the COVID- 19 pandemic we learned a lot about how we can offer services in an accessible and flexible manner. We now better understand the true meaning “client centered” services by letting people choose how they would like to receive services such as by phone, video, or in-person. This resulted in people attending services more regularly and on-time.

Survivors’ Voices: Reimagining Justice for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Survivors’ Voices: Reimagining Justice for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Crimes against people with disabilities are often challenging for professionals who respond to crime victims. Although people with disabilities are 7 times more likely to experience sexual assault than people without disabilities, they often do not have access to victim services. In this session, attendees will explore what justice means to people with disabilities by listening to the voices of survivors. Together, the presenters and attendees will reimagine what trauma-informed best practices should look like for victims with disabilities.

Using Technology to Identify Sexual Abuse in Persons with Intellectual Disabilities

Using Technology to Identify Sexual Abuse in Persons with Intellectual Disabilities

This system creates notifications to DSPs, providers, and administrators recommending an investigation for sexual abuse.

Successfully Investigating Sexual Assault Against Victims with Disabilities

Successfully Investigating Sexual Assault Against Victims with Disabilities

When training for law enforcement focuses solely on respect, police officers are left wondering what they should actually do when they are assigned to investigate a crime against a person with a disability. How do they approach the victim, craft an investigative strategy, and gather and document the relevant evidence? How do they effectively communicate with victims, and ensure they are doing everything they can to protect victims' safety while still respecting their self-autonomy? How do they access and utilize the people, technologies, and resources that might be available to help?
