Forensic Interview Journal Club - Archived Call

Each summer, the Midwest Regional CAC hosts an online session of our forensic interviewer journal club. On this page, sign up to watch the recording and download the handout from the 2021 session, Children with Disabilities and Forensic Interviewing, featuring Scott Modell. During this presentation, Dr. Modell reviewed the realities of life for children with disabilities, including disproportionate victimization, as well as communication do’s and don’ts plus assumptions we make about children with disabilities’ abilities. He also discussed interview techniques that can be used in children labeled as “non-verbal.”
