A professional investigator and journalist since 1977, Debbaudt turned his attention to autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in 1987 after his son was diagnosed with this condition. His acclaimed 1994 report, Avoiding Unfortunate Situations, became the first published chronicle of police and autism related interactions. Over the past 22 years, Debbaudt has trained and developed training materials for law enforcement, first response and criminal justice professionals throughout the United States, Canada, Iceland, Australia, New Zealand, Northern Ireland and United Kingdom. Debbaudt’s recent sessions include NYPD Academy, Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) Annual Training Symposium, Palm Beach County Florida Sheriff’s Office, Virginia Association of Crisis Intervention Teams conference, Florida Child Abduction Response Team (CART) conference and for the Police Service of Northern Ireland in Belfast.
