WEBINAR: Autism and the Criminal Justice System: What Happens When Your Adult Child with ASD Is Detained or Arrested by Police?

Thu, Mar 30, 2017: 10:00 am to 11:00 am


with Emily Iland and Tom Iland

People with ASD can be detained, questioned and arrested like anyone else. This is uncharted territory for most parents, so it’s a good idea to know the facts, plan ahead for such a situation and understand how to help protect your adult child's civil rights.

In this webinar you will:

  • Test your understanding of how the criminal justice system works.
  • Learn about police policies and procedures around detaining and arresting suspects (including those with ASD) taking them to jail, charging them with a crime and questioning them.
  • Learn about resources and options to prevent problems, prepare for different situations, and navigate this aspect of the criminal justice system.

Live Q&A will follow their presentation.

Registration is free, but space is limited: [registration info coming soon]
