Designed for children ages six to 10, the Safety Aware is a new app geared towards empowering children on the Autism Spectrum. Built around the idea of self-protection and growth, Safety Aware offers an eclectic set of characters meant to help autistic children better express and understand themselves. The app also pairs these characters with various books, songs, games and meditations to help connect concepts and reflections imparted on the children.
While the Safety Aware app can be used by all children with autism, the main focus of the app is on those with moderate to mild levels of intellectual ability. The app chooses to focus on this group because of their vulnerability and expectations to develop a high level of independence. The app is also recommended to adults who have children with autism to help them better understand their situations.
