Autism Talk TV - Ep. 13 - Bud Fraze of Playability Toys
Posted on Tuesday, February 08 @ 12:16:04 EST by
WrongPlanet Audio
Autism Talk TV is finally back from our extended holiday hiatus. This week we're interviewing Bud Fraze, president of Playability Toys. We met Bud at the ASA conference in Dallas and instantly hit it off.

Bud shows us various toys he's created for children with special needs. You'll get to learn about a Buddy Dog, a Rib-it-Ball, and a Brain Gear. Playability Toys are designed to stimulate an autistic child's sensory needs.

We originally wanted to include Bud's interview in our famous toy episode but decided he deserved his own show. Aspergian girl and production assistant Kirsten Lindsmith is guest hosting this episode with me. You may remember her from the original toy episode.

The toy thing is ok, but I do like the girl presence…we need more of that…girls are underrepresented.

Wow! I'm shocked how can someone not think in pictures/video? that's totally incogitable. I love how much thought Bud's put into the toys, he seems to have covered everything, I think my niece would love the doll or ball, shame you don't ship to the UK.

Hey Guys, Thanks for yet another episode. This is entertaining! The thoroughness of these toys is amazing. That's what we need our autism for: going for it all the way. One thing about the appearance of you guys starring: while I can instantly "see" Alex's aspieness and therefore relate to it, when it comes to Kirsten, it's somewhat a mistery. Although likely less so than NT women, hmm..?

Nice vid, to make it more dynamic and engaging I'd edit out about half of it, and do more interaction between the interviewer and interviewed.

I just watched this. It's great how much detail and planning went into those toys. Especially that plush dog- it has so much thought put into it.

Have you thought about what you want adidas f50 adizero people to say about you after you’re gone? Can you hear the voice saying, “He was a great man.” Or “She really will be missed.” What else do they say? One of the strangest phenomena of life adidas football boots is to engage in a work that will last long after death. Isn’t that a lot like investing all your money so that future generations adidas predator cleats can bare interest on it? Perhaps, yet if you look deep in your own heart, you’ll find something drives you to make this kind of contribution---something drives every human being to find mercurial vapor superfly iii a purpose that lives on after death. Do you hope to memorialize your name? Have a name that is whispered with reverent nike mercurial soccer cleats awe? Do you hope to have your face carved upon 50 ft of granite rock? Is the answer really that simple? Is the purpose of lifetime youth soccer shoes contribution an ego-driven desire for a mortal being to have an immortal name or is it something more? A child alive today will die tomorrow. A baby that had the potential to be the next soccer shoes store Einstein will die from complication is at birth. The circumstances of life are not set in stone. We are not all meant to live life through nike total 90 laser to old age. We’ve grown to perceive life3 as a full cycle with a certain number of years in between. If all of those years aren’t lived out, it’s a tragedy. A tragedy nike ctr360 maestri fg because a human’s potential was never realized. A tragedy because a spark was snuffed out before it ever became a flame. By virtue of inhabiting adidas soccer cleats a body we accept these risks. We expose our mortal flesh to the laws of the physical environment around us. The trade off isn’t so bad when you think nike mercurial orange about it. The problem comes when we construct mortal fantasies of what life should be like. When life doesn’t conform to our fantasy cheap soccer shoes we grow upset, frustrated, or depressed. We are alive; let us live. We have the ability to experience; let us experience. We have the ability to learn adidas f50; let us learn. The meaning of life can be grasped in a moment. Lydia

No one is more aware than I am of the political consequences of the action I have taken. louis vuitton discount [www.designerbagfactory.com] is tempting to take the easy political path, to blame this war on previous administrations, and to bring all of our louis vuitton outlet [www.designerbagfactory.com] immediately -- regardless of the consequences, even though that would mean defeat for the United States; to desert 18 million South Vietnamese people who have put their trust in coach handbags [www.designerbagfactory.com]; to expose them to the same slaughter and savagery which the leaders of North Vietnam inflicted on hundreds of thousands of North Vietnamese who chose coach outlet online [www.designerbagfactory.com] when the Communists took over North Vietnam in 1954. I would rather be a one-term president and do what I believe was right than to be a two-term President at the cost of seeing chanel bags store [www.designerbagfactory.com] become a second-rate power and to see this nation accept the first defeat in its proud 190-year history. discounted chanel bags [www.designerbagfactory.com] realize in this war there are honest, deep differences in this country about whether we should have become involved; that there are differences to how juicy couture bags [www.designerbagfactory.com] should have been conducted. Tonight, I depart from that precedent. What I ask is far more important. I ask for your support for our brave juicy couture outlet [www.designerbagfactory.com] fighting tonight halfway around the world, not for territory, not for glory, but so that their younger brothers and their sons and your sons can have a chance to grow up in gucci handbags outlet [www.designerbagfactory.com], and freedom, and justice. The answer of the enemy has been intransigence at the conference table, belligerence at Hanoi, massive military aggression in Laos and Cambodia and burberry bags for sale [www.designerbagfactory.com] attacks in South Vietnam designed to increase american casualties. This attitude has become intolerable. We take burberry wallets outlet [www.designerbagfactory.com] not for the purpose of expanding the war into Cambodia, but for the purpose of ending the war in Vietnam.zxj

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
