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. There have been a number of studies documenting a functional analysis of some unsafe behaviors such as elopement. This has led to the development of function-based treatments and strategies that can potentially prevent unsafe behavior.

This presentation will review recent research in the area of safety assessment and interventions and provide proactive, practical strategies and resources, to help ensure the safety of individuals with autism.

Takeaways:

  • Identify why individuals with autism are at a risk for safety concerns.
  • Identify current applied research directives to address safety concerns.
  • Identify components of functional analysis of elopement.
  • Identify skills to teach to address safety skills of individuals with autism.

There is no cost to attend and this webinar is not eligible for CEUs. The presentation will be posted on our blog within two weeks.
