Child Autism Safety

CHILD AUTISM SAFETY - Our goal at My Precious Kid is to help keep every child safe. Children with autism have special needs that need to be addressed in order to keep them safe. Every child with autism is different and will need products that fit their needs. The information below is our suggestions for children with autism but may also be helpful for children with Down syndrome or other special needs.

CHILDREN WITH AUTISM - In order to offer you the best advice for keeping your children with autism safe we have talked with Lauren Padgett, mother of a child with autism. She uses My Precious Kid products to protect her son. Below you will find the products she suggests may help in keeping your child with autism safer. AUTISM SAFETY PRODUCTS suggestions for her 16 year old autistic child, Lucas:
Child Safety Pack

AUTISM SAFETY PRODUCT #
1 Child Safety Pack – Hands down, this is my number 1 choice for Lucas! We have his DNA & Fingerprints on file, and the 3 ID cards work for our family (1 for Lucas’ wallet, one for my wallet along with the Medical Release card, and one for my husband’s wallet). The Safe Shoes stickers are in Lucas’ favorite pair of sneakers.




ID CARDWe supplement the above with: AUTISM SAFETY PRODUCT #2 Medical Release Card AND AUTISM SAFETY PRODUCT #3 Wallet ID Card Kit  Both of these kits have 5 cards each in them, and we have a combination ID card/Medical card in each of our cars, with Lucas’ older brother, with his teacher & with his grandparents, just in case!


Shoe ID TagAUTISM SAFETY PRODUCT #4 Shoe ID Tags – This is Lucas’ favorite! He wears a shoe ID tag on his belt every day, and because his autism creates a need for consistency, once he started wearing it, he can’t leave home without it now! Its flexible nature means it doesn’t dig at him or make him uncomfortable in any way, and while some kids may prefer this tag on their shoes (where it was meant to be worn), Lucas’ belt loop provides the perfect spot for him to wear it.

When Lucas was young, and was a “runner”, we would have jumped at:

Child LocatorAUTISM SAFETY PRODUCT #5 Child Locator – This would have been perfect for Lucas before he was able to “stay with the group” (either at home or at school!) I believe that with Lucas’ sensory issues, the sound this little bear makes when Mom presses the button would have encouraged him to stay put, just so he didn’t have to hear it again!! Wish I had known about it years ago.

Other Products for children with autism:
Since children with autism ALL exhibit their symptoms differently (remember, it’s a “Spectrum”), they have varying product needs. As someone who has worked with these children and their parents for 16 years, my other product choices follow.

AUTISM SAFETY PRODUCT #6
Door Alarms

Enough said! For every parent with a “runner” on their hands!
My Precious Kid has this small wireless door alarms, a Key pad alarm and a door jam alarm for hotel travel.

Dog TagAUTISM SAFETY PRODUCT #7 Dog Tags – For any child who can wear this on their clothes (belt loop behind them out of sight from the child) or their backpack, this colorful dog tag helps let authorities know that, for instance, “Lucas is autistic, may not respond to verbal commands”. In this day and age, and especially with an older child, schools can get very uncomfortable with a kid who doesn’t appear to be following the rules. This tag will help explain things to personnel easily and quickly.


Chore Chart
AUTISM SAFETY PRODUCT #8 Reward Chore Chart – If your child is ready for a picture schedule at home, try this one! Its colorful, easy to understand format is perfect for children with autism. Start slowly, with just one or two items under each category. Once your child masters these and sees that they get rewarded for doing their chores (Lucas used to get an “M&M mini” for each item on his list that he successfully accomplished, then we moved on to money for him to buy things with!)

For around the house. Keeping our kids safe begins at home. Just think of the peace of mind you’ll get with the following items: HOME SAFETY ITEMS

Thank you Lauren for helping us to suggest the right safety products for children with autism. Our passion is to help keep all children safe. While I do not have a child with autism I do have a child with Sensory Integration Disorder. So these same products have helped her. She especially likes the new DOG TAGS. And we have found the CHORE CHART works wonderfully for her. Let us help keep your child with special needs safe too!
