~I received an adorable Big Rig Hope Paige bracelet for a later review. Opinions and stories are my own.~
There are a lot of people who make the mistake of thinking Autism is either a) a debilitating disability or b) quirkiness. The fact is, every Autistic person is unique with their own needs, whether they be emotional, physical or medical. My son is a very healthy silly child, but suffers from communication issues. My non-verbal niece has many medical issues, including a sensory overload and a severe tolerance to pain; should either of them be faced with having to answer the question, “What’s wrong?”, neither of them would be able to.
This is why I love the idea of medical bracelets for autistic children, especially those that suffer from the more extreme issues on the spectrum. Hope Paige has an incredible array of styles to choose from, some of which are disguised as charm bracelets! Each of them can be engraved with the child’s pertinent information along with the option for 24/7 protection from the MedicAlert Foundation®.
God forbid, if anything were to happen to your child when away from you and they’re not able to explain their medical difficulties, someone can help and rely the information to an emergency responder. Many autistic children suffer from an array of allergies or dietary restrictions, all of which are important for medical assessments during emergencies.
I’ll be sharing a review of the Big Rigs Rubber Watch Band Bracelet here soon and I’ll showcase other amazing bracelets then. I just wanted to share why I think what Hope Paige is doing for children is important on the one day where people from around the world are paying attention to Autism Awareness. Their bracelets were created for children and teens who were tired of the old clunky ones and wanted modern chic designs that fit their personalities. From slap bracelet styles to charm, watch band and chain bracelets, they had delivered.
