Autism Awareness Watford

Autistic children are inclined to wander. If they tend to distrust other adults and children they may not respond when they’re called; if they are too trusting of strangers they could be coaxed into potentially dangerous situations. They also may not sleep through the night, meaning that there is potential for them to get up and at it without your knowledge.

Autism Awareness

Supernanny Team Logo By  Supernanny Team 03/06/2007

According to SafeKids, nine million US children under 18 years old have a special health care need – and it can be a big factor when it comes to keeping them safe. Kids with developmental disabilities, whether physical and psychological, have higher rates of injury; as do children with cognitive, emotional or social limitations. So what do you need to bear in mind to keep your special needs child safe and well?

Why is he at risk?

Autistic children are inclined to wander. If they tend to distrust other adults and children they may not respond when they’re called; if they are too trusting of strangers they could be coaxed into potentially dangerous situations. They also may not sleep through the night, meaning that there is potential for them to get up and at it without your knowledge.

Lockdown…

Keep doors and windows secured with childproof locks, especially at night. You may be able to get an alarm that sounds when the door is opened or inadvertently left open.

Water safety…

If you have a pool or pond, fence it off. If there are other children using the pool and there is a risk the gate might not be closed properly, consider a pool gate alarm – it sounds if your child manages to unlatch the gate or if the gate fails to re-latch after someone uses it. These also provide an invaluable Immersion Alarm consisting of a wristband that triggers an alarm if your child falls into the water or ventures close enough to get the band wet.

Wandering stars…

Shopping centres, parks and public events and festivals are a safety nightmare for any parent but more so if your child is autistic. Consider tamper-proof ID bracelets and wristbands, dogtags, or clothing/shoe labels. A child locator is also invaluable: it beeps to give away your child’s location and is especially useful if he tends not to respond when called. Some models allow you to monitor more than one child and sound if the bracelet is removed or if your child goes beyond a certain range. A GPS locator can work better with older children and enable you to map your child’s location.
