services worker. You have two clients, a brother and sister. The
brother has autism and is moderate on the functioning scale, and
the sister has cerebral palsy. Both were victims of bullying and
physical abuse at school.

2. What kinds of programs exist in your area (e.g., location,
area of expertise) to assist victims of crime with disabilities?
How would you provide these services to your clients?
3. Are there public policy initiatives that exist to assist
4. Referring to the potential causes of crime in the chapter, is
there one (or more) that fits the probable cause of their
victimization? Explain your rationale.
