Autism and Safety

Safety is a priority for our community. Stay informed and use our resources to develop a multifaceted safety plan that is right for you.

Wandering from safety is a major concern
Nearly 50% of children with autism have wandered or eloped from safety.
Communication challenges increase safety concerns
1/3 of people with autism may not be able to say their name, share their phone number, or ask for help when in danger.
Water safety is critical for people with autism
90% of wandering deaths are caused by accidental drowning.
