Having a child with autism, Norrin’s safety is my greatest concern especially as he gets older. Last year, Avonte Oquendo, a young autistic (non-verbal) student walked out of his public school and was missing for months, until his body was found. Avonte was a painful reminder of how vulnerable our kids are and how easy it is for a kid to get lost in a city like New York.
I want Norrin to grow up and be as independent as possible, but I still want to be able to stay connected. I love that Folr is a family locator app that allows you to say digitally connected to your loved ones. It provides real-time information on the whereabouts of family members, friends and more. Folr gives kids a sense of freedom and parents peace of mind. I am pretty certain Norrin will have his own cell phone soon. And Folr will be the first app that’s downloaded.
While Norrin may not have a smart phone (yet), Joseph does and I had him download the app. He’s training for the marathon and he’s been running almost daily. It’s getting darker earlier and on evenings when he has his long run, I like knowing that I can use Folr to keep track of his whereabouts.
Download Folr and let me know what you think!
