Event Description
This ‘First Responder’ workshop provides an in- depth look at safety, crime, and forensics unique to autism and other neuro-developmental challenges. Clinical features and challenges of this special population are illustrated with regard to behavior, interviews, social interactions, sensory triggers, decision making, and the many misconceptions about Autism and disability. Court cases, video examples, and group participation will help attendees recognize symptoms and learn specific tactics that can be helpful with encountering an individual in crisis. Participants will learn to recognize a meltdown or shutdown, de-escalate a situation, and interact accordingly when encountering an individual who may be stimming, hallucinating, naked, or wandering. These features may emerge whether the individual is a witness, suspect, or victim of a crime. By becoming familiar with this population and by learning practical communication strategies, those in attendance will be able to manage stressful situation before they escalate into a full-blown crisis.
