This comprehensive one day training session provides the latest resources, materials, and information on persons with the developmental disability know as Autism, Autism Spectrum Disorders or Asperger's Syndrome. The unique challenges posed to police, fire and paramedics will be discussed by Dennis Debbaudt, one of the leading public safety presenters on this topic. Public Act 95-0171 (50 ILCS 705/7) requires all new officers to have autism training as part of their basic academy learning. This in-service trainer will help departments insure that all experienced officers have the same opportunity to learn about this topic. After attending this program, officers may want to use an outstanding training video that includes excellent information, handouts and scenarios for roll call training. This video: "Autism and Law Enforcement Roll Call Briefing" can be acquired through a purchase agreement or borrowed from the NEMRT Instructors Library's video collection for during inhouse training. Research indicates that persons with developmental disabilities are many more times likely to come in contact with law enforcement professionals and pose particular challenges to those who have never experienced the unique social and communication challenges of this disability. The instructor for this course will be Dennis Debbaudt, parent of a young man with with Autism, and a Florida-based licensed private investigator. Debbaudt has authored numerous articles and books, including "Managing Autism Safety: Interventions for Parents: Persons with Autism, Law Enforcement & First Response Professionals" (ASA Advocate, 2003), and Autism, Advocates and Law Enforcement Professionals: Recognizing and Reducing Risk Situations for People with Autism Spectrum Disorders (Jessica Kingsley Publisher, 2002).
