Hi, I am wondering if anybody would be able to give me some advice to what i can do, on a day to day basis like even something simple as going to the shopping store with a child with autism, as easy as this sounds i have a child with ADHD and simple day to day things can be a big problem. i would much appreciate any advice to what i can do to stop them from running away and just miss behaving. Thank you, Liz.

Are you working on behavior in public places?

I brought my dd to a store almost daily when she was 2-4 years old, training her how to behave in public. We would go in buy 1 item and leave, a couple months later we'd buy 2-3 items, and so on. My dd is now 10 and I've been able to take her anywhere for the day with no problems, it's been like that for a few years.  Takes time and patience.

I've never traveled with a child with autism. Hope you get some good advice though!

Good luck. I always made sure she held my hand and carried something with her so she wouldn't have a hand free. You can do it! =)
