All parents have safety concerns when it comes to their children, but children and adults with autism are at a higher risk of being hurt, victimized, or to wander away (sometimes called eloping).
ASIE looks at these issues through the following Quality of Life Indicators
- Health and Well-being – People with autism should feel and be well physically and have access to the services they need to stay healthy
- Safety – People with autism should feel secure and be able to get help from their communities, law enforcement and others as needed
- Subjective Well-Being – People with autism should feel happy and enjoy life
