BE SAFE: Teaching Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders How to Interact Safely with the Police
Thursday, December 5th 8:45am-11:15am
House Salon, Georgia State University Student Center
Presented by the Center for Leadership in Disability and BE SAFE writer and producer Emily Iland, M.A.
Many individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) have unsafe or disastrous encounters with law enforcement officials. Teaching the police about ASD is one part of the solution. Teaching safe behaviors directly and explicitly to teens and adults with ASD is also essential to prevent problems and promote safety during interactions with the police. BE SAFE The Movie is a unique new video modeling tool to teach crucial safety skills.
BE SAFE was made by and for individuals with ASD and other disabilities. This workshop includes a screening of episodes from BE SAFE The Movie, along with hands-on activities from the BE SAFE Companion Curriculum, an evidence-based teaching resource. We invite parents, teachers, therapists, adult services staff, self-advocates, community leaders, disability advocates, agency staff, law enforcement professionals and anyone else interested in teaching teens and adults to interact safely with the police to attend this exciting event.
This event is free but requires advanced registration, as there is limited seating. Please register at: http://besafe.eventbrite.com
