Anyone tried tracking bracelets?
Nick's developmental pediatrician mentioned today that a tracking device might not be a bad idea for Nick. It would go around his ankle in case he got away and could not be located.
He is 5 years old and has ASD. He is verbal. He doesn't respond to his name more than 10% of the time and uses PECS cards to help prompt his speaking.
Since starting school he has tried to escape nearly every day on the play ground.
My mother-in-law is very much against this as is my husband, but I feel maybe it would be best.
Before we got chain locks he got out of our house once alone and another time he tried to take his brother. Never did he get more than a few feet from the door as we try to keep good track of him, but I am afraid there will be a day he does.
I sometimes come off mean/rude, please don't be offended I really am trying to be nice.
