First Responder Training

Glenn at police trainingThis training provides law enforcement and first responders with “scenario-based” instruction with practical application in the field. Pathfinders provides a balance of factual information and practical tips and strategies, along with personal stories that both entertain and provoke thoughtful consideration. Our curriculum focuses on functional ability (rather than specific diagnosis) that incorporates the most prominent developmental disabilities law enforcement and first responders may encounter. The program addresses how to identify disabilities and their characteristics and make necessary accommodations.

Our instructors are certified by the Maryland Police and Correctional Training Commissions. The Pathfinders’ First Responder Training Team consists of self-advocates, Pathfinders’ staff trainers, and active and retired law enforcement.

Our curriculum team consists of Pathfinders’ staff, a respected neuropsychologist, and several law enforcement partners.
