Police Encounter Preparedness Training
Police Encounter Preparedness Training for Teens & Adults with Autism

Police Encounters-Training for Teens and Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Previous research has found that an estimated 1 in 5 teens with autism will be stopped and questioned by police before age 21. And people with disabilities, including autism, are five times more likely to be jailed than those without disabilities. Misunderstandings between police and individuals with autism or other neurological disorders have led to arrests, tasings and even death. I am offering free training for teens and adults with autism that will help to prepare them for the inevitable police encounters that will occur when driving or walking or just going about their daily life. As a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, an expert in the treatment of autism spectrum disorder and a former law enforcement officer, I've created a training course that I am offering free of charge to individuals and families living with autism and other developmental disorders. My goal is to keep our loved ones safe during these police encounters through training and practice. Instruction will include what to do if you are stopped by a police officer, when to do it and questions you should ask as well as opportunities to participate in practice scenarios. Participants will practice social skills based on the science of Applied Behavior Analysis and learn what to expect when stopped by a police office and how to safely respond and communicate.
