Scarfs for Autism

Leo Chao, a student at Emily Carr University, designed the Beagle, a scarf that people can wrap around them. Texture, sounds, and even smells create a calming cocoon that will distract and soothe an autistic person when they’re feeling over stimulated. It’s the electronic version of a blankie that has actual health benefits.

Please let this be available for sale with no profits going to Autism Speaks. *crosses fingers*

As someone with a blankie (or, as I call it, Bumper) I love this.
