First responders train to make sure interactions with people with autism remain safe

Autism Awareness

Imagine being worried every time you step out of your house that your child may end up in an encounter with police. That is the reality for many families of children with autism.

Working in partnership with our parent company, Sinclair Broadcast Group, we want to keep you informed about important health and safety matters.
