I’m currently renovating my studio and instead of taking this week off, I wanted to share a really inspiring interview I did with Nikki White on my Spcial Needs Ohio podcast. Nikki White is from Raising Raymie on Instagram and Facebook. Nikki is here to talk about her autism parenting journey, and share what life is like for her amazing family, from her perspective.

She created the Raising Raymie pages to help further autism acceptance in honor of her 5 year old son Raymie, who was diagnosed with severe non-speaking autism and all those just like him.

Mentioned in this episode:
Introducing The Original Weighted Pillow by Quiet Mind, an innovative tool for easing anxiety, stress, ADHD, and sensory processing disorder symptoms. This compact alternative to weighted blankets is created by Mikey Goldman, who himself deals with ADHD and anxiety. It’s a portable companion, providing an instant calming effect. Unlike large weighted blankets, this soft, easy-to-move pillow won’t make you too hot or claustrophobic. Using Deep Pressure Stimulation (DPS), it offers the benefits of weighted blankets in a smaller, portable format, ideal for children with autism, ADHD, or sensory processing disorder. Consider it a stress ball for your body – hold it, hug it, and let your mind relax.
