Autism Awareness for the First Responder
April 15, 2023 @ 09:00 - 11:30
This class is a three part PowerPoint presentation covering ways to identify someone with autism through common characteristics. We talk about the early years and diagnosis and where these individuals can end up as adults. We’ll discuss mandates reporting and some things that we might see on scene. And we end it with a more specific Fire/EMS portion.
Objectives that will be met:
Identify the person with autism in the field
Learn ways to deescalate the situation
Learn ways to make for a better experience for both the individual and the first responder
