I am so excited to introduce my newest arrivals – The Everyday Autism Series of books. These beautifully written and illustrated books look at life though the eyes of Madi and explores how she responds to the world and the challenges she faces. Written for children to enjoy, but adults will get a lot of valuable insights from them as well. Grab your set here.
Well after a lot of hard work, tweeking and testing, we have finally launched our new checkout which should cover every kind of ordering process needed, yay! This will make it so much easier for all of our customers to zoom through the checkout process quickly and easily with plenty of options to chose from. Obviously as it is new there may be a few teething problems so please do feel free to let me know of any issues so we can get it sorted. Enjoy! Jody 😊

Bouncy Bands for Chairs are finally back! This is the greatest invention in my opinion for kids that can’t sit still in class (like one of my boys!). They can bounce their feet on the strong band as well as hook their feet behind it giving lots of great sensory input. This is probably one of the best items I have even bought for my son in terms of getting him to stay in his seat and do his work rather than roll around the floor and under desks Five stars from me
I’ve just added a great quality new range of products which are wonderful for developing balance, gross motor skills and physical confidence. There are stepping logs, stumps, stones and an awesome balancing path to chose from which are perfect for home, school, kinder and clinics. Check them all out here on my Gross Motors Skills page.
Balance is an essential skill necessary for people of all ages to function in daily life activities. From riding a bike to running to even something as simple as sitting in a chair, balance plays a big part in everything we do. Developing good, strong balance skills as a child helps with gross motor skill development and reduces their risk of injury. It also improves their ability to focus on academic tasks if they have good posture, core strength and developed balancing skills.
Human bodies weren’t designed to stay in the same position for long periods of time so sitting at a desk all day can actually be bad for your health. Adding a wobble cushion to a chair encourages movement which engages muscles and enables focus and active listening. The Disc’O’Sit and Movin’Sit Cushions are available in kids and adults sizes here 🙂
