    as the parent of three autistic kids, I can say that, sadly, it can't.

    They figure out how to shove a butter knife or book or toy onto the latch and wiggle the drawer open. Then they play with the latch, prying it with a toy back and forth until it breaks off.

    "Childproof" just doesn't work with analytical, persistent kids.

    yeah ii found a padlock is the best way to keep kids out my mother runs a program locally for autistic kids
