SAFETY MATERIALS

NAA has created two new safety toolkits that can be downloaded here:

Caregiver Toolkit | First Responder Toolkit

 

There are many precautions that can be taken to prevent wandering, but proper response in an emergency situation is critical. AWAARE has created materials that focus on both. Please click here to find our frequently asked questions. You may also want to review safety and response materials, including:

Autism-wandering prevention brochure
First Responder Alert Form
Family Wandering Emergency Plan (FWEP) Template
Individualized Education Plan (IEP) Sample Letter
Caregiver Check List

The items listed above are included in NAA's Big Red Safety Box, along with the following products that can be purchased online:
GE Door Alarms
Who's Shoe ID


We also recommend using Stop Sign Visual Prompts for doors and windows.  To create your own, perform a Google Image Search to find an image you like. Then right-click on the image and choose "save image to desktop. Print and adhere to windows and doors.  You can purchase pre-printed adhesive stop signs and other safety items at the NAA website.
