This course is to help members of public safety recognize and respond appropriately to persons with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), the fastest growing developmental disability in America. Designed in three online, self-paced modules, this course focuses on identifying persons with ASD, understanding their risks and providing aid to them more effectively. These topics are addressed through videos, case studies and interactive questions. This course was developed in collaboration with Missouri Department of Mental Health.
