 PURPOSE: Criminal justice professionals working to improve their response to crimes of sexual violence must be properly equipped for their encounters with victims having developmental disabilities or other special needs.  This training will identify some of the unique challenges faced by survivors with disabilities and will provide effective resources and strategies for professionals responsible for investigating and prosecuting their cases.  Putting these concepts into practice can improve our ability to come full circle from initial contact through investigation and prosecution of the case.
