Autism Society Rhode Island Sponsors Training of First Responders

ALEC (Autism & Law Enforcement Education Coalition) helps to foster a deeper understanding of the ASD among public safety and law-enforcement personnel. Training is available for police officers, emergency room personnel and firefighters, educators & school administrators, therapist, parents & other family members of individuals with Autism using curriculum and videos specific to each group.  ALEC trainers Fire Department Captain Bill Cannata, Fire Department Captain Tom Buckley along with Police Officer Jimmy Donohoe are all personally touched by ASD. They know first hand how vital the proper education and training is for all First Responders, in fact how important it is for anyone working with, caring for and responsible for someone with Autism. (For any questions regarding ALEC please contact Bill Cannata, program director at 781-762-4001 ext 420 or via email at http://www.arcsouthnortfolk.org/alec-first-responder-training.html )
