Wandering and Drowning Prevention Toolkit
Nearly 50% of individuals with ASD wander. 90% of deaths in the ASD population group (under 14yrs old) is a result of drowning. This toolkit is a world first, and equips parents, educators and keys stakeholders with a range of preventative and reactive strategies and resources, designed by clinical specialists, which aim to mitigate the associated risks.
Some of the resources include a Wandering Action Plan, information on tracking technology, caregiver checklist, identification tags to be worn on shoes, strategies to prevent your child from becoming over-stimulated, and ABA-based programs to teach your child not to leave home without the appropriate cue to do so.
