"I love it! It feels so comfortable! ...We would like to try the jacket with some of the kids who often take a long while to settle down for the session."
- a team of ABA program therapists
"This is a dream product! It's light weight and comfortable. I'm going to spread the news when I'm back in Taiwan."
- a renown university professor with decades of experience working with children and families with special needs
"There are quite a few from our classes who will really benefit from this! It feels really good... (GRINS) I think I will benefit from this too!"
- a group of teachers of students with special needs.
"My son really calmed down considerably after wearing the jacket. Just now he was jumping around and shouting, but now he can even answer some of our questions!"
- a mother of a 6 year old child with Autism.
We bought several items (keychain, soap, coin pouch and a t-shirt) from Asia Community Services (ACS). ACS manages the Stepping Stone Centre, a work place for individuals with intellectual disabilities which provides a platform for them to explore and develop their talents in hand-crafts. Collectively, these items are called Special HandS items, and they even have a catalogue.
We also added to our library shelf with a book written by parents chronicling the family's journey with a daughter who was born deaf. After an operation at a very young age, she now she can hear with the help of a hearing aid. We got the autograph of the little girl (now 8) who bought the book.
