      Testimonials


      J. Rogers / Sherwood Park, AB / 8 yr old daughter with ADHD

      "My daughter loves her new blanket. It is definitely helping her to settle at night and is not up or rustling around 1/2 as much as she used to. In fact, she rarely get up after the lights go out. The flat snake is also a hit. She absolutely loves her warm snake while she is reading before lights out"

      Cheryl W. / Alberta / Occupational Therapist

      “I have been an InnovAID customer for a number of years. InnovAID offers flexible, friendly service. If I need an item customized or adapted, or on short notice, I know InnovAID will try to do it. If they can’t, they let me know in a timely manner and give me helpful suggestions of what can be done. I enjoy working with InnovAID and do recommend their services!”

      Juliette C. / Alberta / Teacher

      “Awesome Canadian company with awesome products! As a teacher of special needs kids, anything we buy needs to be very durable. InnovAID’s products are durable and well designed. Their weighted vest can be worn with the zipper to the front or the zipper to the back. I have needed to use it both ways. It’s hard to find a vest that is so flexible. Not only that, the denim looks good – not therapeutic. Looks good, wears well and knowledgeably designed – I’m very happy -what more could a person want? “

        No, jail isn’t on the list of co-conditions of autism

        Research AND logic needed for useful solutions

         

         Nutrient deficiencies can cause food cravings. If that's the case, then it's easy to figure out what nutrients are missing by reversing the food craving. But it isn't always the case.

        In our two previous articles, we looked at the connection between fat and physical and mental health, specifically for those on the autism spectrum and those with sensory issues. 

        Here we look at whether cravings tell us what other foods we need for health.

        Come be a fathead with me! Part 2

        Fat is essential to a functioning brain. But only if it’s a healthy fat. This creates a vicious cycle for people on the autism spectrum and those with sensory processing disorders (SPD) who may have strong food preferences. Food manufacturers have used cheaper harmful fats in their made-to-be-addictive foods. Continue reading to learn autism-specific fat facts and get the list of desirable fats.

        Come be a fathead with me! Part 1

        Healthy brains are 60% fat. People on the autism spectrum are often way below that percentage. A low-fat brain is a struggling brain.

        I’ll share with you my updated info on fats, how good and bad fats affect the body and brain, and specifically what that means to people who have neurological issues, as is the case for people on the autism and fetal alcohol spectrums, those with sensory issues, ADD and ADHD.

        Fix your gut => Fix your brain? Autism and our microbiome

        Our gut loves variety but much of what we do chips away at what our gut (and our brain) needs to be healthy.

        Safer sun options for the tactile defensive. 🌞 Part 2

        Last week we talked about the differences between sunscreen and sunblock, concerns, and misunderstandings. Today we dig deeper and offer solutions, especially for the tactile defensive, which is common among those with sensory processing disorder (SPD) and autism.

        Getting unstuck with Dilbert’s creator, Scott Adams

        Scott Adams (Dilbert creator) is considered a success. He got there through systems, but not goals. He thinks goals are for losers.

        The self-induced fearful and fun days of summer!

        We ask others, especially those with special needs, to make changes. To try learning something new. Yet, sometimes we're hesitant to take the advice we give. By making changes ourselves, we can have a better idea of what we are asking others to do.

        Hurry up, patience! I needed you 5 minutes ago! In our hurried life, the relaxing pace of summer is a welcomed change. Unless things aren't moving at our pace. A change in what we do or the pace we do things at can be quite disruptive for some. It can also be a chance for new learnings.
