Autism Awareness Skills that Save Lives and Prevents Litigation

Every month you read stories about people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) who are hurt or killed by 1st Responders or well-meaning people, who incorrectly assess or act in a crisis situation involving people with ASD. The results of these missteps can not only be measured in lives, but dollars it will cost your organization or community for perceived negligence.

This presentation by professional speaker Jim Zalud will measure your current "pulse" of autism awareness in crisis situations, and offer instruction on measuring the body language of stress in neurotypical (normal) people and people on the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The program will also tell you what to do, and not do, in a crisis situation.

At the end of this program, you will have a basic strategy of how to deal with an ASD crisis situation, and the resources available to further your depth of understanding, to help you from causing harm or inviting litigation.

Training Objective:

  • Understand the growth and gravity of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
  • Understand the faces of ASD individuals and Neurotypical (normal) people, when placed in a stressful situation.
  • Identify procedures that will likely produce a positive crisis outcome.
  • Learn how to physically control an ASD person in crisis, to better ensure physical safety.
  • Understand the value of advocating registration of all people with ASD.
  • Understand the value of social networking, in reducing location of ASD individuals who elope, wander, or run. These terms all mean the same thing, running away.
