"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"

“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.

Here we look at whether cravings tell us what other foods we need for health.
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.
Healthy brains are 60% fat. People on the autism spectrum are often way below that percentage. A low-fat brain is a struggling brain.
