Autism safety wristband – Free kit

We just got our “Big Red Safety Box” from the National Autism Association. It had so many thoughtfully chosen safety window / door alarms, decals, this bracelet (an anklet for our little guy–which is actually perfect since he may otherwise remove it!) and so much more. The box and it’s contents are available for free, or with a suggested donation if possible. Donations are accepted from both caregivers or other donors to help fund these lifesaving boxes as well. Spread the word to someone who needs it — safety is a constant uphill battle for many autism parents and you may just be saving a life! A diagnosis is required. Click here to order or donate.

Also, just a quick reminder that our free beach yoga class for autism parents and caregivers is tonight at 6 on the beach at 5th Street East, Folly Beach, SC, and every Thursday @ 6 p.m. for the rest of June.

The days and times will be changing in July . Please give us your feedback on what works best for your family. We want this to be as convenient as possible for everybody.

Free Autism Safety Kit – Big Red Safety Box

 

Folly Beach Island Yoga Autism Class Parents Safety Free Box

Nearly 1/2 of all children with autism bolt or wander. This pic was taken moments before our son suddenly bolted for the woods by the spray play at Wanamaker Park (Charleston County Parks and Recreation) just a couple of weeks ago. Since he is nonverbal and often attracted to water, with his newfound wandering tendencies something as simple as a trip to the park to play in water sprinklers can spell real anxiety for an autism parent. The National Autism Association is offering their “Big Red Safety Box” for FREE to families of children who have autism — it includes  an educational booklet, 2 window alarms, a MedicAlert bracelet and shoe tag, 5 laminated adhesive “stop” sign visual prompts for doors and exits, 2 safety alert windshield clings, a safety alert wristband, and a child ID kid from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. A diagnosis is required.

If you are not a parent or caregiver of an autistic child, consider donating to this worthy cause. It could truly save someone’s life one day.

Folly Beach Yoga for Autism Parents

We wanted to share another reminder of our Folly Beach yoga class for autism parents and caregivers. The class is free to all autism parents and caregivers and meets Thursdays at 6 pm at the beach on 5th Street East. No experience with yoga is necessary. Being a towel, or mat if you prefer, and plenty of water to drink before, during, and after the class.

We hope to see you there!
