Not high tech, but this low tech adaptive pack is a great idea generated by business students…

The Disability Scoop.com shared a new backpack design for students on the spectrum. The Nestle Pack provides sensory input as well as attachment of oral and tactile fidgets. Read on about the innovative pack.

HT to Disability Scoop for sharing this post.

Hmm, I wonder if an optional belly strap would also help???
