Alabaster First Responder Training
Autism Society of Alabama

9:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Thompson High School: 100 Warrior Drive, Alabaster, 35007

In collaboration with the Autism Society of Alabama, Dustin Chandler, Co-founder of Interaction Advisory Group and a disability parent and former police officer, provides customized special needs awareness and first responder trainings to first responders as well as other public service officials, educators, and private sector workers (hospital professionals, etc.) in Alabama.

The Autism First Responder Trainings are designed to educate individuals 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 an 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.

Cost is free and includes certificate and 4 CEUs
