Huntsville, AL -- Feb 03, 2014 / (http://www.myprgenie.com) -- April is National Autism Awareness Month and several different organizations and brands are doing their part to help raise awareness of autism and educate the public about autism. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in every 88 children in America are identified on the autism spectrum, which is a ten-fold increase in the last 40 years. Children with autism sometimes have intellectual disabilities, difficulties in motor coordination and attention, and often other physical health issues. Some of these children need specialized products to help them with their development. Barbara Schantz, mom inventor of the Baby Dipper bowl that helps children with special needs, shares her list of unique products to help children with autism.
1. Baby Dipper Bowl
The Baby Dipper bowl makes one-handed feeding of babies and toddlers easy for parents. It has also come to the aid of children with special needs or other self-feeding issues. Children can see through the transparent sides of the bowl and concentrate on getting the food onto their spoons and into their mouths. All users of the Baby Dipper feeding set avoid the frustrations of chasing the food around the bowl and the bowl around the table. Winner of this year's Huggies MomInspired Award!
2. Parking Pal Magnet
Place the Parking Pal on the side of your vehicle, where it will remain safely attached at all times. It was specifically designed with bright colors, playful illustrations, and a small palm children love to place their hands on. After a couple learning sessions, your child will discover that the Parking Pal is their safe spot, and they will know where to go the second they are outside the car. It also helps teach them that parking lots are no place to play.
Wrapeaze(TM) is a unique hooded wrap that envelopes your child in warmth quickly and easily -- with only one hand needed! No more wrestling with little arms and sleeves while you stand in a cold parking lot. Your child will love that their movement is unrestricted, and you can avoid tantrums and tears and save you precious minutes. There is no better way to fuse utility with style!

4. Sand Gone
Sand gone is a dry body powder that, when applied to sand covered skin, removes the sand and leaves the skin soft and smooth while feeling fresh and clean. This product is great for children who are extremely sensitive to the texture of sand. It can be used for cleaning up after the beach, sand box, or playground. No more uncomfortable scratchy feeling under your clothing during the drive home from the beach.
Buzzy is an award-winning reusable device used by children and adults alike to block pain. Originally intended to reduce needle pain during injections, Buzzy is now being used for everything from removing splinters to burns, eczema itching, botox and tattoos, tattoo removal and laser hair removal, tick removal and more. Buzzy's technology consists of a high frequency/low amplitude vibrating motor and a unique reusable wing-shaped ice pack for natural pain relief. It works by desensitizing the body's nerves and dulling sharp pains. Also available are Buzzy DistrACTION cards which can be used with Buzzy or on their own to help keep kids distracted and occupied whether at the doctor's office or a long trip in the car.

6. Hello-Beach Tote Bag
Hello Beach treasures totes are inspired by shell-collecting kids. Our darling beachcomber bags are perfect for collecting treasures or rocks along seaside (or lake), wash the shells and leave the sand behind. Children have an inbuilt drive for discovery. Our totes encourage creative exploration as well as promote activity and healthy development for kids to observe the world and to feel a sense of wonder for everything in it. This activity is suitable for Children with Autism, by enhancing your child's development through play. Collecting shells, rocks, sea glass, etc. helps with fine motor skills, focus and attention, cognitive development, sensory, social/pretend play, and more!
7. Eco Nuts
One concern of many families with someone on the spectrum is the chemical exposure with traditional cleaners; many people with autism can be really sensitive to chemical fumes, fragrances, etc.
Eco Nuts(R) Soap Nuts are a berry shell that naturally contains soap. The natural soap found in these berries is called saponin. Saponin is a natural cleaner that works as a surfactant, breaking the surface tension of the water to penetrate the fibers of your clothing, lifting stains from the fabric, and leaving dirt suspended in the water that is rinsed away.
Eco Nuts Soap Nuts are gentle on both clothes and skin, making them ideal for those with sensitive skin, eczema, allergies and psoriasis. Because they are so mild, they are perfect for baby clothes and even cloth diapers.
Our products don't contain any harsh chemicals and are certified USDA organic with 100% plant-based ingredients.
