Keeping your child with autism safe – MedicAlert Autism Program

In an effort to help keep children, adolescents and adults with autism safe, we’re excited to share a wonderful new MedicAlert program has been recently launched in partnership with Autism Canada.

Here is how the program works:

  • The program is available to all Canadians on the autism spectrum.
  • Subscribers provide MedicAlert with the relevant personal (routines, triggers and de-escalation techniques) and medical information (allergies, medications) emergency responders need in an emergency
  • The program includes a special offer that entitles new subscribers to receive:
    • One-year subscription to MedicAlert service
    • Free unique Blue and Red MedicAlert Autism Program ID and Shoe Tag
    • Free Shipping
    • Free Registration
    • No Tax
  • The cost of the program to new subscribers is only $60

Why the MedicAlert Autism Program is the right choice for individuals on the autism spectrum:

  • Voice in an emergency – if an individual with autism is unable to effectively communicate, MedicAlert tells emergency responders what they need to know and empowers them to make informed decisions
  • Designed to rigorous medical standards – MedicAlert’s medically trained specialists ensure that all information on the MedicAlert ID adheres to globally accepted medical standards that are critically relied on by emergency responders
  • Critical assistance in seconds – MedicAlert’s 24/7 Emergency Hotline relays key medical and personal information to emergency responders within an average of five seconds of a call, in 140 languages
  • Family notification – MedicAlert will notify family of the situation and whereabouts of the subscriber at the time of an emergency
  • Educates emergency responders – MedicAlert specifically trains emergency responders including police and paramedics to look for the authentic emblem, read the information and  call the 24/7 Emergency Hotline
