My son is a smart boy. We have learned a lot about how to handle most of our dilema's through great support fromprofessionals. But I can not get my son to stop running away. We have locks on all doors and bells. All windows have bars on them. But he has learned how to get around or learned to open every one. What have other famillies done? I have a friend that went through this with her autistic son and she tried everything. It ended up coming down to physical disapline to get him to stop. Please help us before he ends up taken away from me or dead.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

It's called eloping and medications are not the first answer, alot of children with autism elope. Therapy therapy therapy and constant supervision. My son eloped alot and went far but now when he leaves he has a spot he stays at and waits there
