Event description

Description

Individuals with autism respond to emergency situations in a different way than the general population. To avoid complicating situations and averting tragedies, the Autism Society is offering this comprehensive training session on effectively interacting with individuals and their families.

The Autism Society’s Safe and Sound initiative is a collaborative effort with industry professionals Fire Captain Bill Cannata and Police Sargent Jimmy Donohoe. Their almost 50 years of service to the communities is combined with years of experience presenting autism-related training sessions. Together they have created a nationwide program that will prepare participants to help individuals and families living with autism spectrum disorder.

This day-long workshop will provide information on how you can recognize an individual with autism and discuss how specific incidents should be handled. The focus will be on providing useful tools for agencies to address field contact situations, communication and behavior, sensory issues, de-escalation techniques and detaining/arresting/restraining and custody issues.

$20 per person Continental breakfast and lunch provided
