Thank you for your commitment and dedication to our program.
We are honored to be partnered with you.
Who: All are Invited! Dothan Citizens, Press and Families and Friends of those with Sensory Needs are welcome to attend.
What: KultureCity Presentation of Certification to Dothan Police Department of Sensory Inclusive™ First Responder Certification
When: January 18, 2022 at 1:00 p.m.
Where: Wiregrass Training Center
100 Public Safety Way, Dothan, AL 36303
Why: Becoming Sensory Inclusive™ Certified helps first responders serve all citizens regardless of their sensory needs, mental health challenges or invisible disabilities.
Based on the research presented by KultureCity
The current US Census shows 1 in 6 individuals has a sensory need and this demographic continues to increase.
Responding to an individual with a sensory need is different and challenging.
Whether a First Responder has training in how to approach someone with invisible disabilities can make a vital difference at crucial times.
People with invisible disabilities (ID) tend to react differently and get overwhelmed more easily than neurotypical individuals due to various sensory sensitivities.
These factors, along with the communication challenges, means there is a lot of opportunity for confusion and actions that can be misinterpreted or cause additional escalation during emergency situations.
These behaviors include avoiding eye contact, being unsteady on their feet, appearing agitated or pacing, not complying with directions, and being sensitive to touch.
No R.S.V.P. needed, for more information call Captain David at 334.615.3610
