Government funding could make it easier to track at-risk children with autism.
One of the most terrifying experiences that any parent can go through is not knowing where their children are and if they’re okay. There is no easy way to explain the feeling of hopelessness when you turn your back for one second, and your child wanders away. There is some good news though, a government grant is giving out two million dollars per year for GPS tracking of children with autism in conjunction with law enforcement.
According to the CDC, one in every fifty-nine children in the United States has autism or is on the autism spectrum. Kevin & Avonte’s Law will give two million dollars annually until 2022 for grants to nonprofit agencies and local law enforcement. This money will be available for caregivers and parents of autistic children to apply non-invasive GPS tracking devices to help locate children that wander away from their homes.
It has been reported that almost half of children older than four with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are reported to elope or wander away from their homes. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) states, ‘one-quarter of families report at least one episode that placed their child at risk for drowning and two-thirds report risk for traffic-related accidents.’ Accidents are the most common cause of death for children with ASD.
