Police Training Video - Spread the Word, Share this Video

Fact: The world is not a safe place for people with ASD. 
Fact: All first responders are not trained to identify and interact with this vulnerable population. 
Fact: I am the parent of an African american male living in Los Angeles
Fact: I am afraid when I think about what could happen to my son if he encountered an unprepared/untrained officer on the streets of this city.

FACT: Attached is a link to a video created to help police recognize and interact with people on the spectrum.
FACT: By sharing this video, anyone of us might be the one, that saves the life of a person with ASD. 

Here is a link to a video that we can share with ANYONE who is a first responder. It's not perfect, It doesn't cover everything, because that is going to take time. What it does is hit some key points, without pointing fingers, and it's the best I've personally seen so far. 

Thanks everyone,
PS: Thanks Lou! 


  1. Thanks so much for tweeting and posting this. I've only watched half the video so far, but I think it will be really useful for officers not only in California, but elsewhere.

  2. Great post! Authorities should keep the law enforcement alive to keep us safe. Thanks for sharing.
