Providing Law Enforcement Agencies with autism sensory kits and non-verbal communication cards that the officers can carry in their patrol units. Our autism sensory kits come with a nonverbal communication card and different sensory items that gives the officer that extra tool needed when they are responding to a call or an emergency situation regarding an individual with autism
Our purpose is to provide free autism training, education & autism sensory kits to all law enforcement agencies throughout the United States.
Our Trainer is a former law enforcement officer and a member of ILEETA  and has the professional knowledge of the law enforcement field as well as having a child on the autism spectrum. 

Autism training is vital to law enforcement agencies because individuals with autism have difficulties with communication and social interactions and will have a tendency to engage in repetitive or atypical behaviors. Law enforcement officers need to be aware that their typical approach when responding to a call or an emergency situation regarding an individual that has autism may not work. With 1 in 68 individuals being diagnosed with autism this year alone, the number of interactions that individuals with autism will have with law enforcement agencies are going up. Every Officer will come into contact with an individual that has autism at least once in his/her career and 7 out of 12 individuals with autism will have some sort of contact with law enforcement in their lifetime. Some individuals with autism are crime victims, some are suspects, but the majority of the individuals with autism that come to the attention of law enforcement officers and 1st responders have wandered away from their caregivers, often without any understanding of danger.

By law enforcement and 1st responders being aware of individuals with autism and knowing and understanding the different behaviors and characteristics of individuals with autism it helps ensure the safety of not only the person diagnosed with autism, but law enforcement and 1st Responders on the scene as well.   We know that the law enforcement have to make split second decisions that is why recognizing and understanding autism is of vital importance.
