A special guest from Virtra, Inc., a global provider of training simulators for law enforcement, military, educational and commercial markets, will share in detail about the revolutionary virtual autism simulator developed by their team and SARRC, which launched nationwide in 2020. The autism simulator aims to train for interactions between law enforcement and people with autism. This training is currently being used to help officers bridge the communication gap and interact more effectively, and positively, with individuals with autism spectrum disorder.
