COURSE DESCRIPTION
In this course instructors from The Scott Center for Autism Treatment will provide officers some guidelines for interacting with individuals with ASD in community and emergency settings, in an effort to reduce the possibility of misunderstanding or escalation when real situations arise.

The reported prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is nearly 1 in 68 school-age children, resulting in a very high likelihood that first responders will encounter someone with ASD at some point in their career. These individuals are commonly the victims of criminal activities, may wander from home, or be mistaken as someone acting strangely in the community. It is vital that first responders obtain training that allows for them to respond in situations involving this population in ways that allow for the best outcome for everyone involved.

In this course, participants will learn how to recognize common behaviors exhibited by individuals with ASD, how best to respond in an emergency situation involving someone with ASD, and how to manage risk when interacting with this population. The structure of this course will be a combination of in-seat learning, role-playing with video scenarios, and question and answer sessions.

The following provides an outline of what is to be expected during this training:

  1. Introduction – What is ASD?
  2. Why is this training important?
  3. How do I recognize a person who may have ASD?
  4. How should I respond to be most successful with individuals with ASD?
  5. How can I best manage risk in situations involving individuals with ASD?
  6. Rehearsal: Practice
  7. Q&A
