Take proactive steps to ensure your loved one with Special Needs feels SAFE, UNDERSTOOD, and RESPECTED by YOUR Police and First Responders
On behalf of our entire department, I would like to thank you for your tremendous and informative training...
I know this training has made our department better equipped to handle investigations involving autism.
Hands down some of the best training I've attended. Hit the mark on so many levels.
This training should be a must for all first responders. Thanks for all that you do Jerry. Eric should be very proud of this dad.
Your presentation was excellent. As you know it's not always easy to keep officers interested in a presentation and you were able to.
I would say that the length of the presentation was just right and your message and information were well conveyed.
Thanks so much, Jerry, for an outstanding presentation today. It really hit home and I wish that we all had this awareness back in my day.
Today I learned so much that I wish I knew years ago.
