WHAT OTHER FIRST RESPONDERS SAY

This training opened my mind to what autism actually is and ways to be more patient on calls.

Nice to hear the personal stories. Information was excellent and very helpful. I look forward to taking what I learned today and applying it practically to my job as a public servant.
