Autism Safety Training

fast-logoOn Saturday, April 11, 2015, the Family Autism Support Team (FAST) with support from the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders and former VSU Police Chief Scott Doner, sponsored an Autism Safety Training for First Responders. The presentation was provided by Dennis Debauddt, a nationally known autism expert and law enforcement trainer. Regional agencies including the Valdosta City Police and Valdosta City Fire Department sent personnel to be trained. One professional drove from north of Atlanta as he had a duel interest in the training. He is both a first responder AND the parent of a child with autism.

Following the training, FAST sponsored a FAMILY FUN DAY at a local park. Sensory friendly activities were provided including bubbles, silent bowling, shave cream play, coloring and play dough. Parents were able to sit and talk and share while VSU students from Communication Sciences and Disorders and Communications, provided childcare and support.
