Several health and scientific journals have recently reported that Autism is on the rise. The reason (or reasons) why Autism is becoming more common is largely unknown. Many scientists point to the environment while others point to poor nutrition.
As health experts attempt to solve the Autism mystery, more and more people responsible for Autistic children and adults are turning to GPS technology.
A recent story about a 4-year old Autistic child has caused a lot of parents to consider GPS tracking bracelets for Autistic children. Jackson Kastner went missing one day while his mother was unloading groceries. Panicked, Kastner’s mother phoned local police. Michigan search and rescue found Jackson’s body floating in a local river less than three hours after he had disappeared.
Scientists and health officials are still trying to understand why Autism is on the rise. In the meantime, keeping track of any Autistic person can be accomplished with the help of GPS technology.
