Alex and Jack are back in episode 9 with an entire episode devoted to stimmy autism toys! Autistic individuals frequently have sensory issues. Consequently, toys that stimulate the senses are very popular among those with Autism. We went to the Autism Society of America conference in Dallas and show you a variety of toys being sold in the exposition.

We even have Kirstin Lindsmith, a special aspergian girl guest who blows up a skushi ball! And Alex wields the powerful and precise Chinese YoYo!

Read on to watch episode 9 of Autism Talk TV!

It is often said that louis vuitton monogram have nine lives, that they are lucky enough to escape from danger again and again. Here is a science fiction tale about how one such lucky escape by a cat led to a discovery that was able to change the course of louis vuitton Antheia. The problems stemming from the discovery also make interesting reading. Somebody someday will make a study of the influence of animals on history. Among them, Mrs. Graham's cat should certainly be included in any such study cheap louis vuitton online. It has now been definitely established that the experiences of this cat led to the idea of quick-frozen people. We must go back to the files of the Los Angeles newspapers for 1950 to find lv monogram handbags. She suspected no connection between the two events. The cat was not to be found until six days later, when its owner went to fetch something from the deepfreeze. Much as she loved her pet, we may imagine that lv monogram bags was more horror-than grief-stricken at her discovery. She lifted the little ice-encased body out of the deep--freeze and set it on the floor. Perhaps it is unfair to pull all the responsibility on one louis vuitton outlet. Had such a thing happened anywhere else in the country, it would have been talked about, believed by a few, disbelieved by most, and forgotten. But it happened in Los Angeles. There, and probably only there cheap lv monogram, the event was anything but forgotten; the principles it revealed became the basis of a hugely successful business. The Zeritskys were businessmen, first and last. Anyone who had the fee could put himself lv monogram purses away for whatever period of time he wished, and no questions asked, The ironclad rule was that full payment had to be made in advance. Law enforcement agents, looking for fugitives from justice lv uk, found no way to break down this system, nor any law which they could interpret as making it illegal to quick-freeze. Perhaps the truth is that they did not search too diligently for a law that could be made to apply lv us. As long as the Zeritskys kept things quiet and did not advertise or attract public attention, they could safely continue their bizarre business. ZHC

This is my favorite episode so far. Please do more that focus on the interaction between Jack and Alex. Even better, add Kirsten or another girl with autism, to the whole episode. So fun to watch Aspies having fun together. Cats are the best stim toys!

I was always a big Lego fan, which is pretty stimmy in itself. My mother gave away my Lego (unforgivable!!) when I was at university, but I'm making up for it now. And now I can get big, complicated sets... My adult life has also seen me move on to adult Lego, or (as it is usually known) flat-pack furniture. I find this fun, which baffles norms.

Pretty cool guys well at least what I saw, I probably would have gotten more out of it if I had been trying to read the titles of the books in the background LOL. One of my favorite stimmy toys was my football, a ball made out of numerous tiny pink feet all connected at the ankles!

are these guys actually Autistic, or do they just support Autistic people? I kinda liked the stimmy stuff as a kid, but would get bored fast enough with it. The bulkier one reminded me of myself at a younger age( though I've always been skinny, like the other guy), but the other one is more like how I am now.

Hah hah...those are fun! I have blocks to stack - same concept. I had the same light-up squishy ball that Jack presented. (However, on a more serious note: For those of us who have any (mild) seizure disorder, which is often coupled w/ AS, do not use the light-up squishy ball as it flickers - can even trigger a sensory meltdown. It's noted on the toy's label too). OK, I think the WP shop ought to carry WP logo squishy toys!

TOYS!!! :D I'm so bad with the stimmy stuff that I've got koosh glowing & tactile worms, a stress squid, Slinkys, tactile balls & a giant freakin' exercise ball in my dorm room... ;) p.s. I've gotten some gross comments from at least 1-2 NT friends about some of my toys... anyone know how to deal with that? Also, I'd be more specific but I don't think it will sound child friendly.

Alex did that flashy ball bother you or am I reading your body language incorrectly? Well it bothered me, I know that for sure LOL I like the outside of those and the feel of them but the flashing lights drive me crazy. Thanks Jack and Alex for another awesome production! I really enjoyed seeing your playfulness :) I wish more adults would loosen up and just have fun!

Zooks, I have got to find that white foldy puzzle deely... It looks like paper. Very cool. I can do without the gross stuff... and... got to mention... you over-filled the ball. The knobbles aren't supposed to be stretched out... my kids have had these before and they're supposed to be squishy and bumpy, not bouncy... sorry dude. I think we're supposed to scrunch and squeeze them and such while we're having meltdowns or something.
