GCWJ Director Dr. Sandra Morgan and Board Member Dave Stachowiak discuss an important issue that is often overlooked when working with victims of human trafficking – victims with developmental delays. The Office of Victims of Crime has developed a great resource that examines the issue of working with victims who have intellectual and/or developmental disabilities and the best practices to implement to best serve this population. How are these victims identified? How can the community support these victims? Learn important skills involving listening to language, paying attention to non-verbal communication, and choosing appropriate expectations when working with developmental delays. Listen to this episode and learn more about this important topic.
