Canucks Autism Network E-Learning Module

January 8, 2019

The Canucks Autism Network has launched a new online resource for first responders. NSR is a proud partner of CAN.

Why Should First Responders Take the Course?

Individuals with autism are 7x more likely to interact with First Responders than other members of the general public. This FREE module will provide First Responders with critical information for recognizing autism and keeping individuals with autism safe.

About the E-Learning Module

This highly interactive 1 hour module was written with the support of a committee of First Responders including police officers, firefighters, paramedics and search and rescue volunteers, with the input of individuals with autism and caregivers. The module walks learners through 4 real life scenarios.

Learners will be asked to recognize characteristics of autism, learn from watching videos of First Responders talking about similar experiences, and select support strategies that would help with each situation. Learners who complete the course will receive a certificate of completion.
