Parents and caregivers view the safety of their children as a significant concern. Children and youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) may wander or elope, making them more prone to leaving the safety of a caregiver or support person and wandering from their home, school or community setting. This can cause significant risks for those who may not be aware of possible dangers or harm and can put tremendous stress on families. In this session, you will learn tips and tools to help anticipate the risks, avoid the dangers, and teach the skills your child needs to stay safe at home and in the community.
