Today I would like to welcome Brandon Davies from My ID! MyID is a company that sells identification products for individuals with any type of special needs. This way, if an emergency ever occurs, first responders can get necessary information. This is a sponsored post. I personally found this company very interesting since their new product helps so many people in the Autism community with a problem that is being featured on the news way too often. I hope you like MyID as well!
Statistics show that about 1 in 68 children have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). For those children and adults with ASD, a quick dіаgnоѕіѕ оf уоur соndіtіоn wіll lead to fаѕtеr аnd mоrе еffесtіvе treatment. Yоur MyID mеdісаl ID will аlеrt dосtоrѕ, раrаmеdісѕ, аnd ѕсhооl nurses оf уоur medical information and history so that tіmе іѕ not wаѕtеd.
Kids & Autism
Kids with autism often find themselves having delayed speech development. It can take them longer to begin speaking after they are born. If it's severe enough, they may not even be able to speak at all.
Those with Autism can sometimes wander off and get lost. Occasionally on the news, you see that somebody with special needs has gotten lost or is missing. Communicating verbally can already be a challenge for an Autistic child, not to mention if they are hurt or scared. They can just hand over the medical ID instead of trying to explain their condition(s).
MyID can be what helps a good samaritan or first responder identify somebody who cannot speak for themselves. By scanning their MyID medical ID, the person who finds them can easily see their profile and that they have Autism. They can also notify any emergency contacts with just the tap of a button. With the MyID Hive and MyID Sport, you can also add an Autism slider that shows at a quick glance what condition you have. The picture at the top of the article shows the blue MyID Hive with an Autism slider.
Adults & Autism
The same as it is for children, it's important for adults to have a way for people to identify them in a medical emergency or if they are lost. The medical ID could do all the talking for them because with a simple QR code scan, website visit, or phone call. Those who are trying to help can see:
Medications Being Taken
For many adults with autism, they would rather just hand over the medical ID than having to verbally explain what it is they have. Some people with Autism already have a hard enough time communicating verbally, now imagine how difficult it could be if they are in pain or really scared because they are lost.
Easily Show Doctors Medical History and Information
Many of those with Autism have various medications that they take. MyID allows you to store all your medications that you have taken or are currently taking. You can pull up your profile at the doctor's office to show him/her all your medical information instead of having to fumble through papers. Having all this information easily available and accessible is convenient for both you and the doctor, especially if you ever switch doctors.
