Seven days a week responsibility, being a parent is a 24 hour job.
Let your kids struggle sometimes and try your best to balance the responsibility. From the time they enter this world, you guide them through childhood, plan their education, cheer for their triumphs, and help them up when they fall; all done with an unlimited amount of love. Like fingerprints, no two children are alike and there are always challenges. That is especially true if you are the parent of a child with special needs . In general, there are four major categories of special needs children:
1.Physical (i.e. Muscular Dystrophy, Sclerosis, Epilepsy)
2.Developmental (i.e. Down Syndrome, Autism, Dyslexia, Processing Disorders)
3.Behavioral/Emotional (i.e. ADD, Bipolar, Oppositional Defiance Disorder)
4. Sensory Impaired (i.e. Blind, Visually Impaired, Deaf, Limited Hearing)
According to the National Center for Education Statistics:
In 2014–15, the number of children and youth at the age of 3–21 , who receive special education services was 6.6 million, or 13% of all public school students. Among children and youth receiving special education services, 35 % had specific learning disabilities.
In March of 2016, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) released statistics including one which stated that more than one in seven children have a mental, behavioral, or developmental disorder. With these statistics in mind, it is important to have access to tools and resources that will help parents of children with special needs . For instance, a visually impaired child may use an assistive technology, text-to-speech (TTS) software because they have difficulties reading standard print. Or a hearing-impaired child using a sound-field system (microphones in mounted speakers) that project sound around the classroom. Each family who has a child with special needs will have different concerns and every situation is unique.
Besides using educational and other developmental tools to help manage the concerns of special needs children, there is another area for parents to consider – safety. These children go to the same places, face similar issues, and lead full lives the same as kids who don’t have special needs. Keeping track of and monitoring the child’s movements would provide a measure of security and peace of mind to the parents.
The solution is here.
weBond Inc. introduces the weBond product weConnect, a stylish smartwatch that incorporates GPS technology with innovative tracking application to provide an easy-to-use smartwatch. With the weBond product, you can set a virtual fence (“geo-fencing”) around your loved one so you can monitor their location, review the previous locations, and alerts you when your child passes over the boundary set.
If your child takes off the watch, you will be notified immediately so you can take action. If your child feels threatened or becomes lost, there are “one-touch” buttons they can use to bring help. This can be especially useful for children who have auditory or developmental needs.
Your child deserves this extra layer of caring and protection. At weBond, we believe in providing the parents with a wearable GPS technology option that links them directly to their children – fast connectivity, powerful processing in addition to the other communication options via voice, chat, or text messaging make the weBond product GPS smartwatch an important tool in a family’s security suite.
