People with developmental disabilities present unique challenges to first responders, emergency medical professionals, judges, prosecutors, public defenders, and victim advocates. Autism, the fastest-growing developmental disability, now affects 1 in 59 American children, and it is estimated that this disorder over 3.5 million Americans has autism. One of every 88 18 year-olds has an autism diagnosis. Approximately 40 percent of people with autism are non-verbal.

Research shows that about one in four people with developmental disabilties wanders, just like people with Alzheimer's disease. People with developmental disabilities come into contact with the criminal justice system seven times more often than their typical peers, and are overrepresented in the prison system. Victimization and false confession rates are also much higher than for the general population. Further, individuals with developmental disabilities are frequently used by criminals to assist in law-breaking activities without understanding their involvement in a crime or the consequences of their involvement. They may also have a strong need to be accepted and may agree to help with criminal activities in order to gain friendship.  

People with autism live on average 18 years less than their typical peers, mainly due to the increased incidence of suicide, intractible seizure disorders, and wandering. Over 50 percent of people with autism, for a variety of reasons, aggress against their usually overstressed, exhausted, and underresourced caregivers. Often, they have communication, language, and cognitive difficulties that affect they way they communicate, especially under stress. Research shows that mothers of adolescents and adults with autism experience chronic stress comparable to combat soliders. Their needs also must be met by first responders, emergency medical professionals, and mental health experts, when appropriate.
