Safety kit helps families of children with autism

The National Autism Association is responsible for a new device that can help parents of children with autism locate their child if they go missing along with other safety benefits.

It’s called “The Big Red Box,” and it has devices that help with prevention efforts and response efforts in emergency situations for children with autism.

It has everything from wristbands, shoe ID tags and wireless door and window alarms.

Autism clinical experts said the box helps alert neighbors, law enforcement and the community a child has autism during an emergency.

Over the past five years, the National Autism Association shipped more than 40,000 of “The Big Red Box” safety kits to families with loved ones who have autism.

For more information about how to apply to receive “The Big Red Box,” visit the National Autism Association website.
