We’ve all heard of stranger danger and the importance of looking both ways before crossing the street, but children with Autism bring a whole new pool of safety concerns into the mix. If you see signs that your child is autistic, it is a good idea to focus on safety matters for inside and outside the home.
Children with Autism sometimes wander.
- Install a battery-powered doorbell chime that lets you know when your door has been opened. This will let you know if your child has wandered outside, no matter where you are in the house.
