Dennis Debbaudt, founder of Autism Risk Management, was recently featured on the NCDPS podcast to close out World Autism Month. Dennis Debbaudt joins Cassandra Skinner-Hoekstra, North Carolina DPS Chief Deputy Secretary of Administration, and the host of NCDPS Safety Scoop podcast to discuss the benefits of training public officials to effectively interact with people with autism.
Dennis began his advocacy for people with autism when his son was diagnosed with autism. He dealt with police and public safety professionals that were unaware of people with autism in the 1980’s when autism was relatively unknown. A lot has changed over the years and people are aware of autism, but training hasn’t caught up. He discusses the need for autism training with police and public safety professionals.
