Individuals with autism present with unique challenges that make them at risk for a wide range of safety concerns. They may, for example, wander from caregivers, be unable to seek assistance when lost and may not know how to respond to unwanted advances by strangers in the community. This presentation will provide proactive, practical strategies and resources, and applied research directives to help ensure the safety of individuals with autism.
After attending this event participants will be able to:
1. Identify why individuals with autism are at a risk for safety concerns.
2. Identify current applied research directives to address safety concerns.
3. Identify skills to teach to address safety skills of individuals with autism.
4. Identify current technology that can enhance safety of individuals with autism.”
