April is Autism Awareness month or Autism Inclusion Month. My daughter is on the spectrum so both awareness and inclusion are important to me.
I wanted to share a few subscription boxes that would probably be enjoyable to those on the spectrum (and even those who are not). Please keep in mind, these are some generally themed boxes that would be attractive for those looking for sensory-type boxes. However, if your child or person has a specific interest, such as an obsession with stickers, I would suggest looking for boxes specifically for their needs.
I hope this list gives you a few ideas or maybe a good starting point for subscription box gifts for those on the Autism spectrum.
My Messy Box is designed to be fun, simple, and educational. There is a different box for every age group, your child will never get a repeated box from 1 through 6+ years old. Experience the wonders of messy-sensory play through a range of 3-4 activities in each box, and witness the rapid improvement in your child's cognitive development.
