“Wandering/Elopement: Real Dangers and Prevention”

Thursday Nov 9, 2017 at 6:30pm

Children with autism have a tendency to wander/elope. This is a huge concern for parents and caregivers. According to a 2012 study in Pediatrics, 49% of children with ASD have a tendency to wander or bolt from safe settings. Individuals with ASD are often attracted to water, yet have little to no sense of danger. Drowning is a leading cause of death in children with ASD. The workshop will address the dangers of wandering/eloping. It will also provide tips on how to keep your loved one safe.

Workshops are free to Autism Tennessee members; non-members pay $5/family at the door. Enrollment is limited; reservations are requested. Childcare is available with 48 hours advance notice. All community members are welcome.

All events are held at the Cross Point Church in Bellevue unless otherwise noted. 7675 US 70S Nashville, TN 37221 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
