Childrens Silicon Medical Alert Bracelets – Affordable AUS supplier

A parent on a forum I am a member of posted her product she designed this morning. I love it!

They come in great colours, they are latex free and you can add which ever medical alert button is appropriate for your child. This is such a fantastic way to alert medical staff, teachers, day care workers, and anyone really! And all on the one band.
I really haven’t seen anything like this before on the market.

I have included a few images of the medical alert buttons, there are many more, so please go to the site and have a look.

They are very affordable and shipping is only $5 Australia wide.

My new body scrub obsession! Franks

Sorry I have been very quiet over the past few months. Christmas took over my life! And we were preparing for our daughters Starlight wish, and going on a plane can take weeks to prepare for with a special needs child as you all know!

But todays post is for the mummy’s, or daddy’s 🙂

I love body scrubs, but have struggled to find a good rough one that does a great job. I had even started using used coffee beans ground up just to get the right roughness I want.
A lovely friend gave me Franks body scrub for my birthday and I am in love! Made from coffee beans so the texture is perfect and great for your skin, mixed in with other oils and lovely stuff to leave you body feeling great. My fav is the Cacao Coffee Scrub.
And best of all they do free shipping in Aus 🙂

A braille book library for children – Feelix library

I just got told about this service by my daughters speech therapist, the Feelix Library. They have “kits” you can borrow. Each kit contains the original picture storybook annotated with braille, an audio CD or DAISY recording of the story, some tactual aids to help the child enter the world of the story and a little handbook with tactile graphics so that children can tell the story to themselves or others.

The ‘Feelix Library’ for children is Vision Australia’s response to the need for very young children who are blind or have low vision, to have access to stories like their sighted peers. Parents and siblings can then share wonderful stories together with their child or sibling, and learn about braille. The echidna, called ‘Feelix’ is the symbol of the library, chosen because the echidna has poor vision with very good olfactory and tactual skills.

The name Feelix refers to the feeling of braille dots and the Feelix logo includes the words ‘I can feel the words’ in print and braille. Each child receives a small plastic echidna as their borrowing card – a tag is attached with their name and number brailled on it.

Library membership

Membership of the Feelix library is open to all young children who are blind or have low vision (aged 0-7years) living in the States and Territories where Vision Australia operates.
