What to do to discipline an Autistic child

Hi everyone. Our daughter will be 4 the end of September and really don't know what to do in regards to disciplining her.
She can talk and is very mildly Autistic they said. When we send her to her room she can come out and do the same thing again. She doesn't realize she is doing wrong even when telling her.she runs around where we live but doesn't stop snd goes further than she should but can't get through to her that it's dangerous.
Was wondering if anyone has any tips I could use
Looking forward to replies xx😄

When my son was 2 he would try to run into the road and i had to put a leash on him. He hated it, but i loved it because it was close by me. It was a monkey backpack. Eventually he got the idea that he was going to get hurt and I took it off of him. I also have a friend that recommended it to me becaue her son was autistic, smarter then alot of kids his age and he had issues wondering off. It worked for both of us. Maybe you could try it.
Also, youre daughter sounds like a typical 4 year old when it comes to sending her to her room. My 4 year old daugghteer is the same way. She will do something wrong and i'll tell her to go to her room. shell sit in there for a few minutes and come out doing the same thing. I just make her sit in time out for 4 mins where i can see her. Then when she is finished she doess what i tell her to do. GL
