This OVC-funded online training toolkit produced by the Vera Institute of Justice was created in response to conversations with professionals working with survivors, many of whom are open to asking about accommodations, but don’t know how and are worried about saying the wrong thing. The toolkit lays out four simple steps for providing accommodations to survivors with disabilities, and includes sample language that can be used when talking to survivors.
