    Wandering and elopement are now recognized much more widely as posing serious threats to children with autism and sometimes even older children who may still tend to run. Some sources indicates as many as 48% of kids with autism have been reported to elope. Statistics aside, do you have a child who wanders or has wandered? How did you handle the first instance, and what have you done since to effectively counter or control your child’s desire to wander?
