This system traps my son to the hours the aid has to clock in and out.  The aid works 8am to 4pm.  So he can not leave the house before 8am and has to be home by 4pm.  He travels to Richmond ( a trip that takes 1.5 hours of travel) for OT, PT and speech and therapies have to be scheduled to allow for the travel time. This means that instead of scheduling all three in one day he has to travel 4 days a week.  This costs a lot of money in gas and it means that he can not do the homework the therapists want him to do.
