Outlook Newspapers Writes Article About Pasadena Providers and First Responders Seminar

Check out the May 4, 2017 article by Shel Segal of Outlook Newspapers called "Bridging the Gap Between First Responders and the Disabled" about a recent seminar held by Pasadena service providers and first responders.

Following is an excerpt from the article:
Emergencies can happen without warning. And although first responders do their best, there are times they come across situations that make the emergency even more challenging, including communicating with individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities.

Villa Esperanza Services, AbilityFirst and Professional Child Development Associates joined forces recently and presented a seminar and training session at Ambassador Auditorium to help train families and caregivers how to work with law enforcement and first responders.
