Course Description

Taught in tandem with the Pamela S. Buchanan, University of Texas – one of the nation’s top experts on autism!

The alarming stats on the proliferation of autism make it extremely clear that every officer in the country must be trained on its characteristics and the strategies that help successfully navigate contacts involving people with autism.

Your ability to immediately recognize that you’re working with someone with autism can mean the difference between a peaceful, well-controlled encounter and a tragic disaster with immeasurably destructive results. This course will help you understand how to approach these encounters and avoid common, potentially deadly mistakes that can quickly derail them.

This understandable, immediately applicable 3-hour course will teach you:

  • The telling signs of autism that will help you recognize you’ve encountered it and allow you to respond accordingly.
  • How to avoid physical and verbal triggers that can agitate a person with autism and unwittingly provoke spontaneous, difficult-to-control outbursts.
  • How to master unique deescalation skills specifically designed to cater to the unique needs of people with autism.
  • Special tactical steps you must take to ensure maximum safety should you need to take a person with autism into custody.
  • How TO leverage the help of relatives and friends to gain—and maintain—control of a situation involving an autistic person.
  • How you can knowledgeably determine whether resistance to commands & control efforts reflect a failure to comply or are the result of autism.


This class is a crash course in contemporary leadership skills and traits. It’s essential to those interested in learning… and great to those currently leading.
Officer Rivera, Salinas PD, CA
