Children who are flight risks-New York Times

The attached story is real.  If your child is - or may be – prone to running away, make sure a plan is written into the IEP on how to prevent your child from running away, who at the school should be contacted, and when and how to contact you.  Ask about training for staff for your child if he or she is flight risk.  Ask about measures the school can take to prevent your child from running away, and a plan of action in the event your child does run.  Inform the school about triggering events, if you know.  You may also want to ask for an FBA.  The most important thing to do is to notify the school, including the entire IEP team, if your child is a flight risk.
