Print our tear-off flyers that offer information on how to access help from Victim Service Center in English and in Spanish. Hang them in a private easily accessible space (like a bathroom) to allow access to VSC information for anyone using your space. The key is to post them in confidential locations so that individuals feel comfortable taking the information privately.

We at the VSC are committed to providing individualized care to all victims and survivors of trauma, including those with ASD. Through our educational conversation with Dr. Kim Spence, the Coordinator of Educational and Training Programs for the Center for Autism and Related Disabilities (CARD) at UCF, the VSC has put together a tip sheet on assisting victims who are on the Autism Spectrum. This document covers the definition of Autism, statistics on frequency of diagnosis and comorbidity, common behaviors a person with ASD may have, and general tips for interacting with individuals with ASD. We hope this tip sheet is not only helpful for our partners that work with victims, but for everyone!
