Help Find a Lost Child with Autism

Help keep a child with an autism spectrum disorder safe!
Children on the spectrum engage in many behaviors that can be incredibly stressful to their families, but among the most stressful is wandering, "eloping", or bolting — that is, leaving a safe space without the knowledge of caregivers.
This behavior can be dangerous — children are unprepared for weather and traffic, and drowning is also a great fear. Many children who exhibit this behavior often cannot communicate their name, address, or phone number — by any means — to someone trying to help.
Fear that their child could leave home during the night can disrupt sleep for families, and this same concern during the day can keep families socially isolated from activities they could otherwise enjoy with their children.
Prevention is key to keeping a child on the spectrum safe from wandering, but if and when prevention fails, the next imperative is to find the child quickly. The "FOUND" program aids in the locating and recovery of a child by law enforcement, quickly and effectively reuniting families and putting the child out of danger. The success rate of finding wanderers wearing the transmitter device is 100% to date.
You can help find a lost child. $30 provides one month of this locating service via the FOUND program, using a wristband transmitter, to a family with a child with autism.
National Autism Association responds to the most urgent needs of the autism community, providing real help and hope so that all affected can reach their full potential.
