Training for Officers and Emergency Responders
With the 1 in 54 national prevalence rate for autism, it is inevitable you will encounter someone affected by ASD in your work as a first responder, fire fighter; in the criminal justice system; in public safety and security; in Emergency Medical Services (EMS); as a medical professional; and in everyday life. Our community helped inform our training so that your encounters have positive outcomes. AuSM’s officer training is P.O.S.T.-Certified and qualifies for CEUs in other fields.
