A Father Created An App To Help His Son With Autism.

When children with autism started losing their lives to wandering off alone, one dad used technology to save them.Every parent wants to keep their kids safe, but that task can be difficult for parents raising children with autism.
Being a parent is a challenging job, but it’s even more complex for those raising children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), a developmental disability that affects individuals socially and behaviorally. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates 1 in 68 children in America has been identified as having ASD. That is a significant number for a disorder that currently has no cure.

One dad with a son diagnosed with ASD decided to use technology to prevent wandering, and it saved a child’s life.

On Jan. 21, 2016, his company launched its First Responder Alert, which gives parents the ability to broadcast an emergency alert to a predefined group of trusted people in case a child wanders off.
