Description

Description

The Safe Signals project, a video role-modeling skills kit for parents and high-functioning young adults with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), aims to reduce the incidence of accidental injury. The program teaches behaviors that will help individuals with ASD to avoid dangerous situations in the home. The grant will help develop the Safe Signal kit and workbook, which contains a safety skills DVD for young adults with ASD as well as a workbook that takes a room-by-room approach to safety, awareness, and prevention. The kit will be translated and distributed in Spanish and Somali as well.
