The temperature has dropped and the task of bundling up for some outside fun or journeying to therapy feels daunting (or impossible!) for parents of children with special needs. There’s also the issue of a break in routine, which can take our kids with special needs out of their comfort zone.

Looking for someone to look after your child with special needs is a stressful scenario – not only must you find someone who clicks with your child, but you must also feel trust in their abilities to give you peace of mind. Here are four tips for finding a caregiver for special needs children.
I am the mother to two wonderful little boys, one who has autism and one who is “normal” (whatever that is!). There are many things we didn’t know before we became parents, and even less when you hear a word like “autism.” There are some things I wish I had known before my son was born, and I wish I could share them with every parent out there.
The AngelSense community has compiled a list of 10 of the best books on autism spectrum disorder to help you and your loved ones see the world through the eyes of someone with autism. Our hope is that these books will make you more tolerant, understanding and will improve your relationship with your child with special needs.
My name is Doron, founder of AngelSense and the father of Itamar, a 17-year-old teenager with Autism, who is sweet and naive like a little child – an eternal child. The idea for AngelSense came from the deep worry for Itamar, since he is so vulnerable and cannot share what he goes through.
As we prepare for the holidays, parents of children with special needs have their own system for lists, requests and shopping. We’ve got this! And then the inevitable question from a family member or friend – what to buy our child? Friends and family can need a little assistance in making choices, particularly for kids with special needs. As parents we know that the act of playing is an important part of the growth and development of our children.
Designing a GPS tracker for kids may seem an easy endeavor. Make it durable and make it small, and hopefully hard to lose! When the AngelSense team set to create the Guardian GPS Tracking Device, they had more than just a child locator in mind. They were specifically creating a monitoring solution to provide full day visibility into the day of children with special needs – children who might have sensory issues, or potential obsessive behavior.
