|First Responder Awareness Project
In response to the recent police shooting of an autistic teen in Salt Lake City, our group of high school research assistants have reached out to local law enforcement to understand current police training programs. Their goal is to develop resources for law enforcement lead by self advocates on sensory and communication differences. Our team was given a slot to participate and present in future trainings for local PD.
We are developing a video for law enforcement to better understand those with sensory and communication differences. We are looking for self-advocates and caregivers to respond to the question "What do you want police to know about you?"
We are no longer taking participants for this survey.
If you have any questions, or comments, please reach out to Matthew Jacobs at firstname.lastname@example.org
| Foldscope Curriculum
Every student deserves quality curriculum regardless of who they are or the tax bracket their school falls into. Microscopes are unique in that students begin to use them as early as first grade, and continue to use them throughout their education. Foldscope has created a quality microscope that only costs about $1 per unit.
After piloting Foldscope at our school, we wanted to continue to support their mission. We are developing curriculum in house for Foldscope microscopes which will be made available for free.
