Keeping Kids with Special Needs Safe

Stefan Harhaj - Birdhouse and Clouds
Birdhouse and Clouds by Stefan Harhaj

The Waisman Safer Kids Program provides safety consultation, resources, and products for children with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDDs) who have safety risks, such as wandering and elopement. Children with an IDD, such as autism and Down syndrome, are at a higher risk for wandering and other unsafe behaviors that can put them in danger of serious injury and/or death. More than one third of children with autism who wander are unable to communicate their name, address, or phone number. Through the Safer Kids Program, Waisman family navigators provide support and address the urgent needs and safety concerns of each family and provide resources and safety items such as: safety cards, door/window alarms, cabinet locks, travel wristbands, and shoe ID stickers.

We need your help.

Your charitable gift will support the Waisman Center’s Safer Kids Program and provide children with intellectual and developmental disabilities who have urgent safety needs and concerns with resources, consultation, and safety products to help keep children safe in their homes and community.
