Founder of LakiKid: Sensory Tools for Home and Classroom with Jason Hsieh

NORD, the National Organization for Rare Diseases invited me to be a speaker at the 2020 Living Rare, Living Stronger Patient and Family Forum on a breakout panel for caregivers. I’m going to be talking about stress reduction and emotional well being as a caregiver and I’d love for you to join virtually July 18th-19th, 2020. 

Today I’m talking to Jason Hsieh, a local father whose son was diagnosed with autism and ADHD. There were limited resources and therapy opportunities in Japan at the time of the diagnosis, so his family moved to Seattle to get the help they needed for their son. He struggled to find affordable, quality products to help with his son’s sleep, anxiety and sensory challenges so he created his own brand instead. LakiKid is a product design company and also a community of families helping each other through patient support groups and live Facebook seminars.
