The Safety Sleeper

Safety Bed for Autism: The Safety Sleeper®

For children with autism, sleep isn't always peaceful; it takes a while for them to fall asleep, and once they do, they may wake up several times during the night. As a result, their loved ones spend many sleepless nights worrying. We know our founder, Abram's mother Rose, experienced this along with countless families in our community. In addition, some children with autism may not fully comprehend household dangers, so they'll have a tendency to wander or even leave the house.

With The Safety Sleeper®, you will combat the dangers of night wandering caused by Autism-related sleep disturbances, giving you and your loved one a worry-free night’s rest.

Why The Safety Sleeper® Is a Must-Have for People with Autism

Prevent Night-Wandering

Creating a safe sleeping environment is crucial for your child, and that's precisely what The Safety Sleeper® is designed for! Ensuring their bed provides a sense of calm and security, it discourages night-wandering, meaning they won't be tempted to wander at night.


Unlike other safety beds on the market, The Safety Sleeper® uses medical grade fabric and padding to reduce physical harm to your loved one. If your loved one begins exhibiting rambunctious behaviors, like punching or kicking, the enclosed padding will protect them from self-harm. Our safety beds for autism put your fears to rest.

Promote Sleep

Our medical enclosed bed is specifically designed for children with autism and prevents them from standing up or jumping around while sleeping, as it is solely intended for sleeping and not playing. With The Safety Sleeper®, your child has a better quality of sleep and improved functioning during the day.


The Safety Sleeper® not only gives you peace of mind that your loved one is safe but is also portable, allowing you to live your life. As a parent or guardian, it offers a sense of freedom and comfort that you won't find with other beds. With our safety bed for autism, you can relax and feel at ease, knowing that your loved one is protected.

What are the Dangers Associated with Elopement?

According to a 2012 study in Pediatrics, almost 50% of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have a tendency to wander or bolt from safe settings. Elopement behavior in children with ASD increases the risk of injury or death and burdens families.

More than half of families report they have never received advice or guidance about elopement from a professional.

They will help with understanding how a fully enclosed bed system like The Safety Sleeper® can eliminate the dangers associated with wandering, and answer all of your questions, offer words of encouragement, and provide guidance as you navigate how to best protect your child.
