Having a huge issue with 5 year old son. He is PDD, high functioning on the spectrum, speech deficit, and ADHD. Most of his behaviors I can handle but recently he has been running out the door at all hours of the day or night, in the rain, when he's told no or he just doesn't ask anymore he just sneaks out. When I'm in the living room he sneaks out the back door and I find him in the yard, even at 7 or 8 pm. Does anyone have any ideas how to stop this behavior? He can unlock doors, the only thing I haven't tried is putting chain locks up real high where he can't reach but if I do that I am sure he sill just push a chair up to the door. I don't want to put pad locks or anything that need a key to open in case of a fire where we need to get out really quickly. I just need to figure out some way to make him understand that if I say NO I mean NO.
Maybe some kind of noise making alarm that goes off when you open the door.
