ScratchMeNot Flip Mittens for those with Autism:

"Andrea and [Short Stacks] have been great to work with as they provided me with a custom made product that was effective, durable, easy to use, and aesthetic.

As a case manager for students with Autism and multiple disabilities, I searched adaptive equipment magazines and websites.  I couldn't find a product that would help with scratching as a self injurious behavior.   The SMN company worked with me to explore  the options for a customized fit for an older student.

I am pleased to say that after having the SMN as part of the student`s  behavior protocol that  scratching to the point of bleeding has drastically been reduced from 85+ episodes a week to less than an average of  one a month. "
