Dealing with unsafe situations – recognising danger

Posted by: alisrowe, June 3, 2017

Children with ASD may be more prone to putting themselves in dangerous situations than children without ASD. It doesn’t stop in childhood – adults with ASD too, may unintentionally put themselves in dangerous situations more frequently than other people. There is already lots of interesting and helpful information about this subject on the internet and in books. In particular, sources often detail on sensory processing challenges – for example, a person not being able to recognise when something is too hot, too cold, or too sharp and touching it. I am going to look at recognising danger from some other angles, however. I hope you enjoy my thoughts!
