Why We Created

The DayBeacon

My son has Ehlers-Danlos and Dyspraxia.

His school days are long, challenging and filled with anxiety because of his invisible disabilities. Every day when I drop him off at school, my day is also filled with anxiety and is directly correlated to how he will get through his day. How will he handle his pain, his fatigue or his unique challenges? Will he be able to communicate effectively or when he needs some help? Or, will he become too overwhelmed to function that day. 

Every day is different.

My son certainly isn't the only student managing invisible disabilities at school, so I wanted to develop a new tool to help my son, and the thousands of other students, better manage their days.

For Students - For Teachers - For Parents
