Autism Law & Emergency Response Training
What is the ALERT Program?
ALERT provides training for First Responders so they can better serve people with Autism in an emergency situation.
Every training is led by a first responder who has a family member on the autism spectrum. Having different perspectives allows facilitators to provide a comprehensive overview of Autism Spectrum Disorder, including growth rates, theories, common characteristics, behavioral symptoms, and sensory issues. The program will also address effective communication methods while providing practical skills to first responders on how to successfully interact with a person on the autism spectrum during an emergency situation.
