Sleep disorders tend to be more common in children with autism. It’s estimated that anywhere between 40% and an 80% of children with special needs have trouble sleeping.

This new legislation builds on the Missing Alzheimer’s Disease Patient Alert Program, and includes support for people with autism.

Some parents’ first instinct is to reach out to local law enforcement for a tracking solution to safeguard and/or recover their children in the event that they wander. The device I’ve heard parents speaking of in some cases is Project Lifesaver.
For many special needs parents, taking time out to breathe, reconnect and pamper themselves is a little known luxury. It’s easy and perhaps tempting to get caught up in the chaos of daily life where everything else is urgent except you. But you and your needs matter more than you may realize.
