Rhodri Jones is 13 years old and a pupil at Woodeaton Manor Special School called 999 after he found a man collapsed at a bus stop.
Rhodri, who often finds speaking difficult, remembered being taught what to do in an emergency and called for an ambulance.
He went through the I.M.P.S. programme three years ago, at St Michaels Primary School in Marston before starting at the special school Woodeaton Manor.
Rhodri has autism spectrum disorder and finds social interaction difficult.
His mum, Jill said, ‘under normal circumstances he would find it very hard to talk to anybody and he would find it quite stressful. This is a little chap who has real difficulties, but he remembered what to say and it was a really brave thing for him to do. I’m really proud of him.’
I.M.P.S. is really very proud of Rhodri and he was presented with a certificate at school.
