Welcome to POAC's Safety Resource Section. Here, you will find more in-depth information and many of the tools discussed in our safety workshops and training such as Autism Shield and Hidden Dangers. Our product guides and resource lists will help you find everything from GPS locators to personal identification tools, to alarms, to books & curricula, and more. There are also several very practical forms you will find useful to increase safety in your child's everyday life. We also have several articles about wandering and victimization that can actually save your child's life. If you are interested in finding out more about our Autism Shield Program, check out the article in New Jersey Cops Magazine or take a look at our brief video describing the program.
This 20 page emergency planner was developed in response to the concerns of those who care for and about children with autism every day. This document can be used to introduce your child to new health care providers, service providers, babysitters, and to help acquaint your child with his/her teaching staff each fall.
