The current estimate from the U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is that 1 in 150 children have an autism disorder. Handle With Care has been providing specialized crisis intervention training for schools and residential treatment facilities that educate and care for autistic children and adults for over twenty five years. If it is possible to measure HWC’s success by the number of agencies and schools that have continuously depended upon our expertise, year after year, we are very successful.
HWC’s primary duty is to help you protect your most challenging children from experiencing any physical or emotional harm or from inflicting any harm upon another. This necessarily entails mustering all of your faculties and skills to forestall a crisis from taking place by, first, recognizing the usual cycle of escalating tension with the child in question and, second, by interrupting that cycle before anyone is harmed and in a way that preserves your relationship with that child. Given the enormity of the mission, we proudly announce our latest project.
The HWC Autism Project.
Over 500 schools and agencies and tens of thousands of staff and educators who serve autistic children and adults use HWC worldwide. We are asking every one of them to tell us what they face every day and what tools and strategies they use to prevent or redirect a crisis in order to avoid the use of restraint. An email or fax is being sent to every agency and person in our data base requesting their input. The results will be made available on this website to the entire community of parents, workers and teachers touched by autism. An entire chapter (or Module) on this subject will be added to the HWC training manuals. Everyone who assists the Autism Project will receive an acknowledgement.
An HWC trainer can go to your facility and provide training for your staff.
Your organization can send staff to one HWC’s seminars.
