It took a decent amount of bribery and half of December but I talked Ashlyn into making another excellent gift guide for people with autism. Her first one was a hit and I’ve been trying to get her to do another ever since. Two years later we’ve got a new list that’s just as great as her first one.
Here’s Ashlyn’s picks for this year and why she thinks they are great gift ideas for that person you love with autism (in her own words).
Cosmic Ray Wand Fidget
This is good because it helps you relax and keeps your mind busy.
I want one of these because I think it calms people down and it would be easy to take places with me.
Slo-Mo Bumpy Balls
These are good because they keep your hands busy and your mind occupied.
Squeeze Machine and Massager for Feet
Being squeezed gives you comfort so this would be good to squeeze your feet.
100 Ball Pool Balls
Who doesn’t like a ball pit?
Large Bean Bag
I had a bean bag when I was little and this is a good one for when you are big. It makes you feel secure.
These are good because people with autism and people without autism can play them together.
Roylco Animal X-Rays
If you really like animals you can look at these for something new to look at.
Kinetic Sand kit
I love putting my hands in kinetic sand and playing with it and note to parents it does not make a mess.
Chew Stixx Pencil Toppers
You can chew on the end of your pencils and it’s okay if you have these then you can chew on them.
Light and Sound Buzzers
You can have something to push and something to keep your hands busy.
These are really good to block out the noise.
I hope I made your holiday shopping easier. Tell me in the comments if you have any other ideas for my list. —– Ashlyn
