Big Red Safety Toolkit
The Big Red Safety Toolkit can help parents and caregivers of someone with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) who is prone to wandering off from a safe environment, and whose diagnosis may interfere with their ability to recognize danger and/or stay safe.
Wandering, elopement, “running” or bolting behaviors among those within our community present unique safety risks, and create extraordinary worry and stress among caregivers. Drowning fatalities following wandering incidents remain a leading cause of death among those with ASD. The National Autism Association is committed to providing direct aid and support to those at risk.
The Big Red Safety Toolkit has helpful resources including a caregiver checklist, family wandering emergency plan, social stories, tracking technology, safety tools, and more!
