In this presentation, we will delve into the essential role of integrating emergency preparedness into the design of treatment plans for our clients, with a specific focus on individuals with autism and developmental disabilities. The presenters will introduce an assessment tool they have developed to empower analysts in their discussions and the formulation of safety protocols with clients and stakeholders. This tool comprises a thoughtfully crafted set of open-ended questions that cover critical areas, such as fire safety, water safety, wandering behavior, and emergency evacuations (e.g., floods, hurricanes). Throughout this presentation, we will also explore the ethical responsibilities of analysts and engage in a dialogue regarding effective methods for fulfilling these obligations through meaningful conversations and actionable responses based on the gathered insights.
