As parents of children with special needs, we know all too well the dangers our children face every day.  Whether safety concerns arise when they in our care, or when they are in the care of others during school time, camp, or various activities – there are things we can do to help keep them safe!  The world is a scary place for our children to navigate, and even scarier for us because as parents, we KNOW the dangers that exist.  And let’s face it, although we want to protect our children as much as we can, sometimes situations arise which are beyond our control!  From GPS tracking devices and alert bands to safety rules and social stories… there is always something we can do as parents to ensure our children remain as safe as they can!  I have compiled a list of safety resources which I feel would be useful for your family.  This list covers a variety of concerns we as parents have regarding the safety of our children.  As always, if you find a useful safety resource and want me to share it with other special needs families, please get in touch with me! I hope you find this list helpful!
