TouchPoints™ are neuroscience-backed wearables that offer a passive, non-invasive solution that may be more powerful that other methods in preventing nervous system hyperarousal in real-time. TouchPoints can be used in the classroom, at home, or during therapy sessions to attempt to reduce sensory hyperarousal for improved outcomes in children with ASD.
Jacob and his family volunteered to be one of the first beta testers for TouchPoints in 2016 prior to the market release of TouchPoints. ABC 15 documented his struggles with Autism and Success with TouchPoints.
Co-founder and Chief Science Officer of the TouchPoint Solution explains The Science of Autism:
We suggest using TouchPoints For Sleep for individuals with Autism as the zippered sweatbands muffle noise but also make the introduction and acceptance of TouchPoints more seamless.
How to use TouchPoints for Autism:
"I ordered touchpoints for my 11 year old grandson who is on the ASD spectrum. They arrived last week. Since then, my son and daughter in law can not believe the difference. He is a happy child. He no longer has meltdowns where he curses and threatens to start fires and use knives. It is so wonderful."

"They do help with the stress that accompanies autism and with focus. My son just started using them. He is 24. Tonight he was in a panic over a speech he needed to write. Normally, that would be it...he would shut down and go to bed...drop the class. (he is in college). Put the TouchPoints on the medium setting for calm for about 15 to 20 minutes and is now working hard on his speech. Panic attack gone. It has also helped him focus for long periods of time on difficult assignments."
-Kathy McKinley Lacina
"My granddaughter has autism and has been using the TouchPoints at school. It helps her anxiety and she has now made 4 friends for the first time in her life- I think this is due to her have the sensory input that she needs rather than doing hand-flapping, constantly readjusting clothes, etc. Thank you TouchPoints!"
