New resources have been developed for First Responders that encourage optimal interactions with individuals with developmental disabilities. These resources include:

  • a 1-hour continuing education course for EMT's and First Responders
  • a 30-minute short course (PPT with video links) Autism Spectrum Disorders and EMS: The Essentials
  • a Parent Resource List
  • a template for First Responder Tip Cards that can be printed and distributed.

Developed by CU Medical students Chris Rogers and Spencer Tomberg, this project has been supported by JFK Partners, the Autism Society of Boulder County, The State of New Jersey and Rutgers University. All of these new resources can be found on the JFK Partners website.
