Benefits for Independence

The AngelSense solution encourages independence for individuals with HFA (high-functioning autism), Down Syndrome and others with developmental disabilities.

Parents feel comfortable allowing their child to go to nearby places on their own because they have the ability to “accompany” them remotely.


The AngelSense GPS tracker has a real-time map that informs you any time your child has deviated from a pre-established or typical route. This means that you can step back and allow your child to navigate from bus to school, classroom to classroom, and bus to home while still being available if things do not go as expected. It is essential to allow children with developmental disabilities as much independence and basic freedom as they are capable of handling within the range of their capabilities. AngelSense is more than just a GPS tracker, it helps facilitate meeting independence goals without compromising safety.
