Half of children with autism attempt to elope from a safe environment, a rate nearly four times higher than their unaffected siblings. Join us for workshops about autism, elopers, creating safe spaces for the children that elope, and ways to protect the children's financial future.
Moderator: Aaron Carr, Special Assistant to the CEO at Atlas Strategy Group and son of
