Wandering Resources:

Those with autism, developmental disabilities, or seniors with dementia may wander from their homes at some point. 

The Cook County Sheriff Office’s WATR program (Wandering Aversion, Training, and Response) has scent kits that can help canines track scents in emergency situations. The LPD Social Worker has a limited amount. Please call ahead or go to the Sheriff’s website (click here) for more information.


The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has a tip sheet for caregivers who have a child with autism about wandering and encourages a proactive approach. Click here for more information.
