Trainer Credentials: In collaboration with the Autism Society of AL, Dustin Chandler, a disability parent and former police officer is offering Autism Risk and Safety Management First Responder Trainings to first responders in Alabama. Dustin has been trained by Dennis Debbaudt of Autism Risk and Safety Management. http://www.autismriskmanagement.com/. Dennis Debbaudt is an internationally known first responder trainer and ASA is delighted that Dustin Chandler is working with him to offer trainings in Alabama.
Autism Risk and Safety Management trainings are designed to educate first responders about the challenges associated with ASD that may impair communication between an individual with ASD and a first responder. Police officers, fire fighters and emergency medical technicians who are trained to interact with those with a diagnosis of ASD may avoid miscommunications, unnecessary detainments and injuries.
During interactions with first responders, the challenges of language processing speed and communication skills associated with ASD may at times appear to be noncompliance or oppositionality, when there is no intent for such behavior. First responder trainings for ASD decrease the likelihood of miscommunications that are a result of ASD features.
