    A developmental disorder that affects communication and behavior, and includes symptoms that impair the individual's ability to function properly in school, work and other areas of life. Although autism can be diagnosed at any age, it is said to be a "developmental disorder" because symptoms generally appear in the first two years of life. Autism is also known as a "spectrum" disorder because there is wide variation in the type and severity of symptoms people experience. People with ASD have difficulty with social communication and interaction (e.g. lack of eye contact, voice tones that sound sing-song or robotic, facial expressions or gestures that don't match what is being said), restricted interests (e.g., intense interest in numbers, details, facts), restrictive/repetitive behavior (e.g., repeating words or phrases, getting upset at changes in routine or sensory input such as light or noise). People with ASD may also experience sleep problems or irritability, but also have many strengths including the ability to learn things in detail and remember information for long periods of time; being strong visual and auditory learners; and excelling in math, science, music or art. But although ASD can be a lifelong disorder and while children who have ASD have difficulty in talking, playing with other children, and relating to others, including their own family, treatment and services can improve their symptoms and ability to function.

    Mission for Educating Children With Autism - Preparing Adolescents for Adult Life (PAAL) - Herrs LanePreparing Adolescents with Autism for Adult Life (PAAL) began operations in September of 2006. PAAL is a specialty secondary educational program for adolescents with moderate to severe autism between the ages of 14 - 21. This innovative program has established a professional collaboration between the educational system, families, and the community at large to develop a "liaison" for the student post age 21. PAAL will add two new divisions in November 2008 and January 2009 as well as add case management services. The program then seeks to identify all of the skills necessary to be mastered in order to make that vision a reality. To that end, the program seeks to utilize the community as its classroom, and citizens of the community and community opportunities as the educational materials. The program is entirely community-based so that the underlying fundamental principles of transition and integration into the community for adult life are supported. Best practices indicate that individuals with autism learn better in the naturally occurring environment.

    Project LifesaverProject Lifesaver helps provide rapid response to save lives and reduce the potential for serious injury for adults and children who wander due to Alzheimer's disease, Autism, Down Syndrome, dementia and other related disorders. People who are part of the program wear a personalized wristband that emits a tracking signal. If the person wanders off, the caregiver notifies the Project Lifesaver agency and a search and rescue team responds to the wanderer's area and starts searching with a mobile locator tracking system. Search times have been reduced from hours and days to just minutes LehighProject LifesaverProject Lifesaver International
    Project Lifesaver InternationalProject Lifesaver International provides police, fire/rescue and other first responders with a comprehensive program including equipment and training to quickly locate and rescue “at risk” individuals with cognitive disorders who are at constant risk to the life threatening behavior of wandering including those with Alzheimer’s disease, Autism, and Down syndrome. Project Lifesaver has over 1,300 participating agencies throughout 47 states in the U.S., Canada, and Australia, and has performed 2,880 searches over the last 15 years with no serious injuries or fatalities ever reported. Project Lifesaver provides equipment, training, certification and support to law enforcement, public safety organizations and community groups throughout the country and nation. Project Lifesaver International provides in-depth training for law enforcement and other public safety agencies on the use of specialized electronic search and rescue equipment, technology and procedures, as well as teaching rescuers how to communicate with people afflicted with cognitive conditions, all of which are essential to the successful rescue of missing persons who wander or otherwise become lost. They certify search and rescue personnel and provide ongoing management to participating agencies. In addition, Project Lifesaver develops public outreach programs to educate others about the issue of wandering, and they constantly work toward developing public policy and effective law enforcement response to help save lives and “bring loved ones home.” Project Lifesaver InternationalProject Lifesaver International
    Project Lifesaver TrainingProject Lifesaver International (PLI) was founded by public safety officers themselves to bring about a solution that facilitates not just the speedy return of wanderers to their families upon being found but the actual rapid location of the wanderers themselves — a strategy that greatly increases the chance that the wanderer will be found alive. Training for a new agency includes two days of on-site instruction for up to 15 people in your agency, provided by a State Coordinator (a law enforcement professional certified by PLI to train others) or by PLI’s own staff. PLI also provides one-day training for up to six officers to be trained as instructors and re-certify staff every two years. Each new agency will also receive training on Alzheimer’s and Autism, as well as other disorders, to help when responding to a missing client. An agency, usually the first in a state, which agrees to have certified instructors trained can then provide training for other agencies in their state and may then become the State Coordinator.Project Lifesaver InternationalProject Lifesaver International
