Autism Alliance of Michigan GPS Program

The Autism Alliance of Michigan Sean Taglione Memorial Global Positioning Program GPS is partners with local autism advocacy and support groups to distribute GPS devices in Michigan.

This program honors the memory of Sean Taglione, a 12-year old with autism who died from injuries sustained in a pedestrian automobile accident in 2012, shortly after he unexpectedly fled his home, and sadly before he was located. 

To help deter fatalities like Sean’s, the Autism Alliance of Michigan is sponsoring Amber Alert GPS devices to be given at no cost to families, in addition to covering costs for a service plan for one year. The Sean Taglione Memorial GPS Program is part of the Michigan Autism Safety Training, an initiative of AAoM.
