Individuals with autism are seven times more likely to interact with first responders, and yet most first responders are not trained on how to recognize autism or utilize effective support strategies in crisis situations.
Canucks Autism Network supports the first responder community by providing training that aims to increase confidence and effectiveness of responses in situations involving an individual with autism.
Canucks Autism Network delivers live workshops to hundreds of first responders each year across the province.

The Canucks Autism Network E-Learning Module for First Responders was created with the guidance of a team of subject matter experts, including representatives from police, fire, emergency health services and search and rescue. This powerful online tool consists of a 1-hour interactive course and was generously funded by the Ministry of Children & Family Development (MCFD).
