Autism Safety Kit

Use the printable forms and handouts in our Autism Safety Kit to develop a multifaceted safety plan specific to a person with autism's unique needs. Remember, a person with autism's safety needs can change as they get older or when there is a sudden change in routine, so the safety plan should be updated on a regular basis. 

It is important for the safety plan to cover all areas of the person with autism's life including home, school, and any community activities. Inform all teachers, caregivers, and trusted community members about the safety plan. Many families share the forms with their local first responders. 

Note: The contents of this kit were created to help families prevent and respond to wandering incidents involving children and adults with autism, but many can be used for all safety-related purposes.
