      People with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are seven times more likely
      to have a 911 encounter than a neurotypical person.
      Join us for this comprehensive training with two FIRST RESPONDERS who are personally and professionally experienced in ASD.
      •  Recognizing the signs of ASD
      •  Discussion of how specific incidents should be handled
      •  Response and de-escalation techniques
      •  Behavioral, communication and sensory challenges for people with ASD
      Training is a combination of information pieces and actual incidents reviews from real-life situations.
      Captain William Cannata, Jr. (Retired) has been a  member of the fire service for more than 30 years and is the Program Director of "Autism and Law Enforcement Coalition (ALEC)." formed in 2003. He is also a parent of a young man with autism.
      Lieutenant Jimmy Donohoe is the creator of the "Take Me Home Program," a database where participants who are unable to speak or properly identify themselves to police offers register with a photo, physical description, and contact information so first responders can provide special assistance that may be required when contact with a person with autism occurs. He is also a parent of a young man with autism.
