Another Tip for Shopping for Children with Autism

Time is ticking for those shoppers hoping to do a lot of holiday shopping online--especially if you want to choose standard shipping rather than the pricier, but faster delivery options. I just made the deadline at one site the other day which suggested orders be made by December 8 for standard delivery. December 15 stands out in my mind as the last possible day to order online at most places although I could be wrong about that.

Anyway, I just learned about a site that sells items for people with autism from Autism Society of America. I haven't ordered anything from this site, but it's probably worth a look for most people wondering what to buy for the child with autism. I did take a quick peek at this site and realized that it's probably best to suggest this one to parents, caregivers, or grandparents. It looked as if they had just a few offerings, but according to ASA the sellers are offering a pretty good deal.
