PACT

PACT is a non-profit organization aimed at advocating and raising awareness about autism in our community. Our main mission is to help train first responders on how to better support autistic individuals. Likewise, we support autistic individuals in gaining the skills needed to be prepared for emergencies and safe in their interactions with first responders. PACT was founded by Abbey Love, a proud sibling and autism advocate who began her work in Kentucky. Please explore our website to gather any resources you may need!

SERVICE SPECIALTIES

EMERGENCY PLANNING FOR

We believe that a proactive approach to safety and emergency preparedness is one of the most important things for individuals with autism. We can support you in ensuring your local first responders are aware of the needs of your family, supporting your loved one with ASD in appropriate identification and sharing of personal information, and connecting you with safety resources and plans.

TRAINING

Our founding service – we've designed training in conjunction with a parent of an individual with ASD, a sibling, and a local autism community group. We have trained over 1000 police officers in Kentucky, and are working with other first responders, states, and countries. Our training is offered free of charge and can be adapted to meet the needs of your department.  We are available for consultation to help you with this process. 

MEET AND GREETS FOR SCHOOLS &

We believe our training is most effective when paired with a community meet and greet. These events are organized to give individuals with autism an opportunity to meet their first responders outside of a crisis situation, and help first responders get to know individuals with autism in their community (after they have received training). Safety resources are shared with those who come, and results have been life changing! We can help you plan this event in your community, or set up one for you.
