How It Works

WayFinder is an accessible GPS, and it helps people with intellectual disabilities to travel safely, whether by bus or on foot. The traveler simply taps on the picture of their desired destination and WayFinder takes over from there. With WayFinder, specific travel routes can be created, then activated from the GPS location. A support professional, caregiver, or family member can create completely customized and personally meaningful content.

How We Use It To Support the Need

With the use of a Smart Phone, iPad or tablet the WayFinder can provide step by step prompting through travel training. At the same time the GPS functions can alert a caregiver when the individual misses a stop on a bus or gets lost. The caregiver can quickly locate the individual through the GPS and prompt them back through the route to get the indiviudal safely to their destination.
