Elopement
I have one student with autism that is starting to exhibit eloping behaviors. I call the office when I see the antecedent behaviors taking place but he almost walked off campus the other day before someone was able to find him. How can I prevent him from partaking in this behavior?

A functional assessment would help determine what he is accomplishing with this behavior. Is he getting away from something, perhaps a task or over-stimulation? Or is he going toward something, like hoping to get a favorite toy or see a favorite truck? You can not sit back and watch where he goes if it extends beyond the school or into a high traffic area, but interviewing the family and other caregivers may grant you some insight too. You will want to chart how often it happens, what the result is (if able to) and so on. This will provide valuable info to help you create a plan of action to curb the behavior.
