Summer Safety Guide

Check out our guide to a safe and fun summer season for your family!

 

WANDERING PREVENTION

- Wandering is a very serious issue in the autism community. You should always have a plan in place. 

- Prepare ahead of time. 

- Notify neighbors/relatives to be on alert. 

- Make sure your child has a tracking device (such an identification bracelet). 

- To learn more about wandering, visit: AWAARE or AutismSafety.org. 

 

POOL/WATER SAFETY 

- Be sure to pack a lifejacket and other floatation devices. 

- Make sure there is a lifeguard or adult on-watch at all times. 

- Make sure your child knows how to swim, or has an adult with him in the water at all times. 

- If you have a pool, make sure it is secured with a gate or fence to ensure that your child does not go in unattended. 

 

STAYING NON-TOXIC

- Sun safety is very important for preventing sunburn and long-term sun effects, like skin cancer. Make sure your sunscreen is hypoallergenic, chemical-free, and playground safe with a strong SPF. 

- Pack non-toxic insect repellant to avoid pesky bugs. 

- Be sure to read the labels on the products you buy, make sure they are free of harmful chemicals, such as phthalates, parabens, and synthetic fragrances.

STAY HYDRATED 

- Dehydration is very common during summer. Make sure you always have water on hand to avoid dehydrating. 

- Pack light, cool clothing, with a change of clothes if you plan to play in the water.
