Autism Awareness for Emergency Responders

We have given the opportunity to hear and learned about the Autism Awareness for Emergency Responders.

A first responder is seven times more likely to come in contact with an individual with autism than the average person. 

When a disaster strikes at home the most affected were those who are with a person with disability.

What is Autism?

-Early development disorder

-6 months to 3 years old

-Neuro-Developmental Disorder

-A spectrum conditions

-1 in 68 (4 x boys)

 

More about how to respond with person with disabilities, especially with Autism can be watched and learn on this link: https://youtu.be/MOUtiZFVMWE

Our presenter is Sir Mark Anthony T. Padil, a graduate of BS Physical Therapy from Our Lady of Fatima University.  He worked in may respected institutions working with individuals, as a Behavior Therapist or Shadow Teacher in school, center and home-based environments. 

He is the founder and educator of Autism Response PH. The Autism Response PH provides First Responders with information and guidelines for recognition, response and communicating with a person with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in emergency situations.

Hello Maeann,
This is important information especially as ASD and other disorders in that spectrum are so little understood. Good on you for sharing and caring, and for your growing impact:)
