Autism & MedicAlert GPS + Essential

Always Know Your Loved One with Autism is Safe

Half of all children with autism will wander/elope

Fifty-eight percent of parents ranked wandering as one of the most stressful behaviors of children with Autism, according to a recent survey from the Interactive Autism Network (IAN). The majority of families of children who elope are prevented from attending or enjoying activities outside the home due to fear of wandering. With MedicAlert GPS + Essential, families can go out and enjoy everyday activities knowing their loved one with autism is protected.

Families need peace-of-mind and security as autism wandering can be dangerous, even life threatening, and the stress of an occurrence can weigh heavily on parents, caregivers and family. MedicAlert GPS + Essential is a GPS enabled location device, connected to MedicAlert Foundation’s 24/7 Emergency Response Service, designed specifically to locate your loved one with Autism who may wander or elope.
