Responding to Survivors with Autism Spectrum Disorders: An Overview for Sexual Assault Advocates

This guide was developed for local rape crisis advocates who may be asked to work with a survivor with autism.  It is a brief primer on autism, how persons who have autism may respond to a traumatic event and the importance of working with disability providers in a collaborative fashion. There are resource lists for advocates as well as organizational tools designed to assist programs who want to better serve the disability communities.
