Wandering and Elopement

Wandering/Elopement is a really serious matter!
Accidental drowning accounted for 91% total U.S. deaths reported in children with autism ages 14 and younger subsequent to wandering/elopement. Sixty-eight percent of these deaths happened in a nearby pond, lake, creek or river. That is why swimming lessons are so important. Please click here for a list of YMCA locations that offer special needs swimming lessons, and be sure that your child’s last lesson is with clothes and shoes on.

There was a time when I was visiting my aunt, I went to the grocery store and left my son who is autistic with my husband and Uncle. Some how my son unlocked the door to the backyard where there was a pool and no gate. He walked into the pool where the steps were. Just as my husband was coming from the bathroom he saw our son from the kitchen window and ran outside and grabbed him out of the pool. Luckily he was not out there very long.

Has there been a time where you experienced your child wandering or lost?
