Hi.  Not sure if I have posted this topic in the correct spot, but here goes...


I would like to see something available nationally that covers every State and Territory of Australia with respect to first responders (emergency personnel) that will allow them to better serve individuals within their communities affected by hidden disabilities such as Autism Spectrum Disorders.


There's so much available from America, but I haven't seen anything specific for here such as:-


Autism Information for Emergency Personnel:
Autism101 for Fire & Rescue
Autism101 for EMT & Paramedic
Autism101 for Police         etc. as an example only.


What are your thoughts?
