Drowning is the leading cause of death in children with Autism. According to the National autism Association, drowning is among the leading causes of death for people with Autism. In 2009, 2010, and 2011, accidental drowning accounted for 91% of the total U.S. deaths reported in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) ages 14 and younger, after they wandered away or eloped. More than 1/3 of children with ASD who wander or elope are rarely or not able to communicate their name, address, or phone number, making it especially important to address potential risks.
