Many of us know what it's like to be lost. Now imagine if you had limited ability to communicate and a poor sense of awareness or danger. It's hard to even want to think about but it's these type of situations that we as caregivers must prepare for because the alternative... its just scary.
Like most safety related things, the most important thing is to have a plan. Our son has very limited communication skills so we really on other items to communicate for us. He has a safety bracelet that gives important information (no names on bracelet). We are fortunate that our county has a tracking program, so our little adventurer wears a gps bracelet on his ankle. You know your child best. Below are some links that can help you make a plan and keep them safe.
