The Kentucky Autism Training Center began providing Autism and the First Responder training as approved by the Kentucky Board of Emergency Medical Services in 2017. These trainings were delivered in-person and reached over 700 individuals in the first year. Given the potential impact of the House Resolution: HR 131 that passed via voice vote in March 2017, the KATC was been asked to broaden the scope of the training to reach the thousands of First Responders in the Commonwealth.  Learn more about how we can provide training for first responders in your community.
