  • they are for kids with sensory issues (my son is autistic) and it helps them calm down a little and focus. the blanket he wears at night to help him sleep. the drs wanted to medicate him but i chose to find other ways to help him first.

  • Oh wow!! That's great I really hope it works out! I was just listening to this interview on NPR with Temple Grandin. I haven't seen the movie about her yet but I really want to. I think she was the one who sort of came up with this idea or at least she set the ideas into motion. Very interesting lady and very inspirational.

    Anyway good luck with it! Good for you for seeking out sound alternatives for your child!
