Regarding the ASET’s Train the Trainer program:
I attended ASET’s training in Bismarck, ND (June, 2016). My daughter is on the Autism Spectrum, and would have been in the High Functioning/Asperger’s category prior to the release of the Spectrum criteria.
I just wanted to say thank you to you both for all the work you have done with ASET and in raising a child on the Autism Spectrum. I have wanted to do training for my department on Autism, really on people with disabilities in general, for some time, but I was having trouble seeing the forest for the trees. Matt’s presentation, expertise, and current data really was an excellent example of just how to conduct such a training. I very much look forward to receiving your Train the Trainer materials and moving forward. I not only want to reach the fire department, but also the police department, dispatch and the schools.
