Intellectual & Developmental Disability – Emergency Medical Information
Individuals with autism and many other intellectual & developmental disabilities may elope, or wander away, from their family, caregiver, or staff. While this is not a trait of all people with disabilities, it is common amongst many individuals. Individuals with autism and other intellectual & developmental disabilities present in many different ways. It is incorrect to think that all do not speak, cannot understand, or have severe behavior issues.
