Traffic Stop Practice for Individuals with ASD – SCSU
October 2 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
For everyone, a traffic stop can create some anxiety. For an individual with autism, it may have an even greater impact. This program is designed to alleviate some of the stress associated with a traffic stop by providing an opportunity for drivers and officers to interact in a safe, predictable manner.
Participants will utilize their own vehicles for the practice traffic stops. Before the traffic stops, participants will review the steps of a routine traffic stop, and also how to use the DMV Blue Envelope. Drivers and Southern Police Officers will also have the opportunity to meet and engage informally prior to the traffic stops
Drivers with autism must have a current license, car, registration, and insurance. One support person is welcome to attend.
There are two sessions for this event: Session 1 (AM) and Session 2 (PM). Please register for ONE session only.
