My employer, SmartKnitKIDS, believes in Autism research. As many of you know, sensory issues can be associated with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Our socks have been great in the Autism Community. Since they are seamless, there is nothing to irate the toes. Our form-fitting design means the socks gently “hug” the foot. The closeness and the pressure that the socks provide are often soothing to a child.
This morning I came across an Autism research group call EARLI. They are studying how environmental factors and genetic susceptibility are related by studying families with Autistic child who plan to have another baby. The more information we have the better. Knowledge is power, right? If you’re interested, please take a look at their site. http://www.earlistudy.org/
