Actively Teach Safety Skills
for Interacting with Police
What would your son, daughter or student with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) do in an encounter with the police? Run? Fight? Shut down? Melt down? Those are scary possibilities. More and more news stories across the country focus attention on individuals with ASD and other developmental disabilities who have unsafe or even disastrous encounters with law enforcement officials.
Training for law enforcement personnel about ASD and other disabilities is one part of the solution. It is also clear that individuals with ASD and other exceptional needs need explicit, practical training to learn to interact with the police in different everyday situations.
Can you afford to leave safety to chance? It is not enough to just train the police about disabilities. Whether we are parents or professionals, explicitly teaching special learners what to do in different situations involving the police is essential for a safe and independent life. BE SAFE gives you indispensable tools to teach teens and adults to be safe.
