Dayann and Brian McDonough, parents of two kids with autism, recently succeeded in having the AngelSense GPS allowed at their sons’ school. We applaud them for this great effort. By making their child’s school aware of AngelSense’s special school interface and its collaboration tool for school staff, the child and all of its caregivers will benefit from a unique monitoring and alerting solution.
A milestone worth celebrating
The significance of this can’t be overlooked. By allowing tracking devices in schools, thousands of parents around the U.S. are given the peace of mind of knowing that their kids are safe. The devices make it easy for parents to monitor their kids’ whereabouts during the day. This will not only help keep kids with special needs safe, but the hope is that it will prevent what happened to Avonte Oquendo from happening again.
In an interview with ABC New York, Dayann McDonough explained that she hasn’t slept in her own bed for four years as she’s terrified her son will run off and she won’t hear him. AngelSense and her fight to ensure her kids can wear the devices at school has changed that.
AngelSense is school friendly
Aware of some schools’ reluctance to allow tracking devices, AngelSense developed a special interface for school staff. This enabled pre-approved teachers to gain access to the location data as well as the ability to control the listen-in feature during school hours. For many schools, this collaborative approach made them more open to the idea of these devices. In addition, AngelSense is proactive in assisting and guiding parents who need support, encouraging their child’s school to allow the devices.
