This session focuses on specific strategies for an effective response to victims with a wide range of disabilities including those people with disabilities who also identify as LGBTQ.
Topics include: prevalence, definitions, attitudes, obstacles, unique dynamics, accommodations, effective written and verbal communication, forensic sexual assault exams,
protocols and tools for law enforcement and prosecutors. We will also look at tools and resources that can support sexual assault investigations and advocacy including accessible
written materials.
