During the holidays and before a child’s birthday, parents often ask us what they should get their child with ASD. We decided to create this list of items we use with our own children as well as here at Spectrum.
Simply click the image of the item to be directed to the link.

A swivel seat is a fun way for burning off energy in a remote location!
