Project Ability: Interviewing Children with Disabilities

The Project Ability reference guide and training were originally developed in 2008 and most recently updated in 2016 to provide best practice information and guidelines to professionals who interview children with disabilities when there is a concern of abuse or victimization. Project Ability builds upon current forensic child interviewing best practices taught in Oregon Child Forensic Interviewing Training (OCFIT). This workshop will review disability and abuse risk factors; identify four main categories of disability that impact functioning, and review characteristics and accommodations related to the four categories of disabilities. This training is available to professionals who have completed OCFIT.
