What can we do to teach Police, Lawyers, Judges, First Responders, and Teachers about Autism? Arresting a 10 year old with Autism without telling the Mother, without telling the officers that he is Autistic, should be against the human rights of the 10 year old since he is not capable of understanding what he did would warrant this level of punishment, and his only advocate…his mother, wasn’t informed to explain it to him. AFYI is trying to help change this.
