03 | Keeping kids safe
Ask parents of autistic kids what their greatest fear is and many of them will say drowning. For good reason; autistic children are 160 times more likely to drown than the general population. Many autistic children like to wander and seek out rivers, lakes and swimming pools, often with devastating results. Fiona and Travis ask parents and experts for their strategies on keeping kids safe at home and out and about. Warning: this episode contains discussion about childhood drowning, that some listeners may find confronting.
