Most homeowners invest in a security system to keep intruders out of their home, but there’s a growing number of special needs families who install security systems for the opposite reason: to keep their children inside. My nine-year-old son has autism and requires constant monitoring, but as the mother of three, there are times when I just can’t keep my eyes directly on him.
