When considering which topic to cover next, it took about half a second to decide on SAFETY.  Yes, I deliberately typed that word in all caps.  It’s that important.  Amid the numerous concerns involved with autism, keeping your child safe is never far from your mind.  It is a constant; always there, always a source of stress and fear, and it can be crippling.  There are ways to battle this concern, though, to stay ahead of the dangers.  In this post, I will talk about the things we do in our family to keep Peter safe.
