Children and adults with developmental challenges are often characterized as having delays in communication, self- help skills, motor skills and social interaction. During an emergency, individuals with developmental challenges typically will need supervision and much guidance to be brought to safety and made to feel comfortable. They may be confused or upset – as they will be in unfamiliar surroundings. Keep communication to the point, simple and questions are best with YES or NO answers.
