ALEC First Responder Training

ALEC (Autism & Law Enforcement Education Coalition) is a First Responder Autism Training targeted to equip First Responders with the knowledge and strategies to best serve individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders in a crisis situation.


  • Build collaborative partnerships with families, friends, and communities
  • Ensure a continuum of person-centered supports and choices
  • Advocate for the protection of human and civil rights
  • Develop and retain exceptional, supportive staff
  • Provide visionary leadership that is actively engaged in defining future standards of supports
  • Sustain sound stewardship to advance mission, financial, and organizational integrity


In 2018, the ALEC program was chosen by The Arc Tank for a grant-and, was selected as “crowd favorite” through audience participation. Since then ALEC has provided training to First Responders throughout New England with support of The Arc Tank grant. Please see the most recent article in Warwick, Rhode Island on our partnership with The Arc Tank.

The Arc of South Norfolk’s Family Autism Center is pleased to announce it has recently received a grant from Bailey’s Team for Autism in support of our ALEC Program!
