Learn more about Safety for your loved ones, Students and neighbors who are experiencing Safety and Wandering and Elopement problems due to being on the Autism Spectrum.

We pray and hope that all families and individuals who experience Wandering, Elopement and other Autism Related Safety Issues have communities that understand and help them.

Autistic or Person with Autism

*The term 'autistic' is the descriptive referenced by the video title.  It is understood that 'Autistic' is not a preferred 'People First Language' designation as advocated by Kathie Snow - 'Disability Is Natural' and many other individuals and organizations who support the Independence, Inclusion and Integration of persons with Developmental Disabilities

We are sharing a few methods we use as Parents, our son's Teachers/Therapists incorporate and community support organizations and safety experts espouse to help communicate, teach and mainstream Students on the Autism Spectrum.
As Parents, we continue to work with our son on expectations, Transitioning, Peer Engagement, Obedience, as well as, Wandering, Elopement and Safety issues.

Parents of Students on the Autism Spectrum desire the same goals as Parents of Students who do not have Developmental Disabilities:  TO LEARN AND ENJOY ALL ASPECTS OF SCHOOL.
