Safety and Emergency Response Area

It is important for each of us to take measures to be safe and prevent injuries. But people with autism spectrum disorder and those who care them often need to take additional preventive measures to ensure safety – in the home, while traveling, in the community, and during recreation and leisure activities. People with ASD may be act impulsively, run away or wander, or be involved in unsafe behaviors. It is important for emergency responders, law enforcement officials, school resource officers, and others maintaining public safety to understand, prevent, and effectively respond to common safety issues related to people with ASD. Use the tools and resources in the Safety and Emergency Response Area to learn more about autism and safety.
