Autism Speaks supports new diagnostic code for individuals with autism with history of wandering
Date:3/17/2011

ul>
  • Collect data on ASD-related wandering/elopement behavior

  • Explore and research the potential need for and utility of an alert system similar to the AMBER alert or Silver alert, but tailored to the specific needs and characteristics of children under the age of 18 with autism who wander/elope, to help families and communities rapidly locate children with autism who have wandered/eloped

  • Develop and test programs to prevent wandering/elopement incidents

  • Work with the Department of Education to research and develop best practice models related to parental notification of any wandering or fleeing incidents in schools

    "The issue of wandering/elopement is critical to many families and must be addressed in a manner that protects health and safety for individuals who wander," concluded Dr. Dawson. "We need to better understand the scale of the problem of wandering and develop ways of preventing it. At the same time, we need to respect the essential freedom for independence in daily life for people in the autism community. This balance between protecting people with ASD while respecting their rights is achievable."
