Watch: The Synapsory and St. Louis County PD Partner to Help Families with Special Needs
The Synapsory donated more than 200 calming kits to the St. Louis County Police Department. Our founder, Terrie Deslosge, shared the importance of partnering with law enforcement.
“In other states police who have come into contact with children with autism, because of their behavior, [the interactions] resulted in the children being tased and one child was shot in the foot,” she said. “So I thought I really wanna empower the police to interact with our children in a positive way and help them promote sensory regulation for the child.”
KMOV News 4’s Steve Harris was there for the packing, and takes a look inside what the group put together. Watch below.
