SAFE’s Disability Services has launched a website, Promoting Justice – Responding to Abuse Against Children with Disabilities, to provide information and resources on:
- recognizing, responding to, investigating, and prosecuting abuse and neglect against Texas children with disabilities, and
- supporting child victims and their families.
This website is written for criminal justice and CPS staff; as well as for CASA staff and volunteers, parents, educators, child advocates and disability service providers seeking information on how to recognize and respond to incidents of abuse/neglect in ways that do not further traumatize children. You can browse the resources tailored for child advocates, or if you’d prefer you can also browse the full website. Please share this great resource with your fellow staff and volunteers!
