Over the last few months, Debrah Martin, President of Best Solutions Educational Services has collaborated with the Blue Runway for Autism conducting awareness and de-escalation training for first responders and to families who have members with special needs. On May 15, 2021 . The vision of The Blue Runway for Autism and the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department  was not only timely but provided a great opportunity for families with special needs individuals and police officers to engage and learn from each other. While officers learned about sensory and other challenges that people with disabilities experience in the community, families were reminded of the daily challenges that officers face in the community.

A second training was hosted by the Blue Runway for Autism on July 23, 2021 at the Mt. Rainer Police Station in Washington DC. The Sheriff Department of Prince George's County among other first responders and community partners were present. The experience of hands on training provided by Debrah Martin was enlightening for participants, The 3 hour training included role play, Q& A and hands on experiences similar to those that people with motor, vision, hearing and sensory challenges experience in the community.
