If you’re a parent or caregiver of someone with Autism Spectrum Disorder, the fear of your loved one wandering is very real. According to Autism Speaks, nearly half of children with ASD attempt to wander from a safe, supervised place. Children who do wander may become lost, scared and confused. They may be unable to communicate their name, address or phone number. That's why a MedicAlert ID will help ensure the safety of those living with autism.

A MedicAlert ID can be your loved one’s voice in a wandering incident or medical emergency. And MedicAlert's 24/7 Wandering Support® service works with local authorities, to quickly reunite someone who wanders with their family or caregiver. With a MedicAlert ID and membership, families living with autism have peace of mind, knowing MedicAlert will be there when you need us most.

Benefits of a MedicAlert ID and membership
for families living with autism:

  • We're their voice: If your loved one can’t speak for themselves, their MedicAlert ID alerts others to their condition and will trigger a call to our Emergency Response team.
  • 24/7 emergency protection: Our team will relay critical medical information to first responders in an emergency or wandering incident.
  • 24/7 wandering support: If your child wanders or is found while wandering, MedicAlert will work with local authorities to reunite you as soon as possible.
  • Stay connected: In an emergency or wandering incident, MedicAlert will immediately reach out to emergency contacts (parents or caregivers).
  • Peace of mind: A MedicAlert ID and membership is peace of mind, knowing that if your child wanders or has a medical emergency, MedicAlert has their back – and yours.
