Blankets available at Parents in Toto are only for sale at our center thanks to the generosity of Pittsburgh artisan Valerie Cortazzo and loving aunt to an autistic young man. Valerie created her own pattern for a colorful crocheted weighted blanket without the need of rice or plastic pellets. The weight of the yarn alone provides the heaviness needed for sensory relief while the individual strands provide texture and fidget opportunities. Traditional weighted blankets of multiple sizes and designs are also in stock.
Original Books provide a personal window into the thoughts and feelings of Toto’s autistic authors Lydia Wayman, Kim Bingham and Sheryl Yeager. Embrace their talents as a smile crosses your face or a tear drops from your eye. These individuals are true visionaries who will touch your heart with their stories of friendship or insightful reflection into their world. Buy one for yourself and another as a special gift.
