THE SEAN ASHLEY HOUSE
June 9, 2011

My autistic son lived in one of their HCS homes for about 7 years. In 2005 he became emotionally unstable and needed to be hospitalized. Before the ambulance arrived, the police came. Because my son is unable to answer questions much at all, he became even more agitated when questioned by the police. After that occurred The Sean Ashley House sought to have the Houston police department trained to handle special needs of autistic individuals; Dennis Debbaubt presented his " Autism Risk and Safety Management for Law Enforcement" to them. Now that training is required by most of the police force. And the way they now handle incidents involving autistic persons has improved.
