New Tracking Technology for Autistic Kids

New Tracking Technology for Autistic Kids

The new program for the help of autistic kids has been launched on Tuesday by the Nova Scotia. The Nova Scotia will receive a funding of $273,000 from the federal government. Kids suffering from autism will now get the best treatment.

The President of the Board of the Autism Society of Canada, Michael Lewis said that a GPS-based tracking technology for searching people who are unresponsive to verbal calls and other signals will be used by the Project Lifesaver, which will help saving people. To find a missing person, the user will have to wear a transmitting apparatus that emits a signal which helps in finding the person.

He said through a mail that ASC has been supporting the new technology. He also said, "It has been deployed in other environments such as care homes with success and there is no reason to think it would be otherwise in the case of those with (autism) who may be prone to wandering off”.

He added that they will encourage other territories to follow the new GPS technology.

Meanwhile, the Virginia-based Project Lifesaver's website revealed that the police departments of Guelph, Ont. and in the York region, north of Toronto have started following the new technology as well.
