Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are particularly vulnerable in police encounters and emergency situations due to features of their disorder. Experience Autism® is an engaging training that helps law enforcement professionals recognize the signs of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and respond to the needs of this population, to improve outcomes for everyone involved. Our hands-on activities help law enforcement professionals and other first responders recognize the signs of autism and respond to the needs of individuals with ASD. Experience Autism® can help law enforcement agencies reduce risk and improve outcomes for everyone involved.
As the autism population continues to grow and more children with autism grow up, law enforcement officials want training to recognize ASD and respond effectively. Experience Autism® can help!
