Mark Vernarelli, Director of Community Engagement of the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services invited Dr. and Joyce Benjamin to speak with a panel of Parole and Probation Officers at their Headquarters in Reisterstown, MD. It was a very impressive team of managers and agents in various capacities and divisions. What started as informational about the AFYI’s National Registry, became more about awareness of the many aspects where safety of those on the Autism Spectrum, including those already in the criminal justice system, needs to be addressed. How do we accommodate our Autism Population when they break the law? Is general population jail really the only place to hold someone who continues to break the law, but is wired in such a way that punishment doesn’t deter the behavior. Instead, jail sets them up to be a victim. Seclusion worsens their social skills for when they are released back into society. Those with Autism learn differently and need frequent reminders of rules, laws, and social expectations. As AFYI Org expands its awareness of safety issues confronting those on the Autism Spectrum, we will seek to bring awareness to those in power who can address these needs. We are very appreciative of this opportunity to learn more about what is currently being done, and the opportunity to assist those who can address the needs.
