Autism Home Again Scent Kit Program
Let's bring our loved ones home safe, as quickly as possible!
Experienced Autism Alliance is excited to announce that we have joined a community partnership with a Florida based company called Scent Evidence K9. Scent Evidence K9 developed the first scientifically-tested scent preservation kit proven to save lives by helping communities and law enforcement agencies improve their methods of locating missing persons.
Your scent is like your fingerprint to a trained K9 responder. If a person with autism who is nonverbal or has limited speech has wandered or goes missing, a family member can present the scent kit to first responders to begin searching immediately with the best possible scent source. The American Pediatrics Associations states that children with autism have an almost 50% chance of going missing at least once before the age of 17.
Experienced Autism Alliance was awarded the Hillsborough County Enrichment Grant. We used the funds to kick start our new safety program Autism Home Again and purchasing 100 scent kits to give out to the autism community in Hillsborough County. We believe proving FREE scent kits to the most vulnerable in our community is our way of fulfilling our mission to assisting families with children and adults with autism.
