At just 17 years of age Kai & his parents, Mike & Jo (also ‘neurospicy’ & an Occupational Therapist) are helping shape the face of sensory supports for improved mental health of teens and adults. Kai is both Dyslexic and Autistic and started making fidgets in 2017, as a result of being teased at school for using colorful, kiddie-like fidgets. The difficulty is much of what was available to fidget with was either noisy, childish, or easily broken. Determined to find something suitable and stylish for himself, he turned to metal to make his own! Soon enough, instead of being teased - he got requests for them, and Kaiko Fidgets was born! With a strong focus on function, age-appropriate appeal, and durability, Kai and his parents design and create a huge range of supports, including tools for harm minimization, emotional regulation, and focus.

Cards by Jakob

Jakob is 22. He’s autistic and has apraxia. He’s always loved everything to do with sending and receiving cards, drawing, packaging and shipping, and going to the post office. So we decided to take all of that and turn it into a business for him, Cards by Jakob. His speech is unreliable, and he just recently became able to communicate by using an iPad and keyboard. He told us through spelling words one letter at a time that Cards by Jakob is his dream job, and he loves packaging and shipping the most. When we asked him why, he answered, “helping send smiles.” He offers cards for all seasons, calendars, coloring books, and apparel featuring his clever and whimsical art. A portion of the proceeds helps support the Ken Anderson Alliance. They create LIVE, WORK, and ENGAGE opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities.
