Parents create solutions for children with special needs

Aviva and Haskel Weiss, from the USA, started Fun und Funktion, a company that creates unique solutions, games, clothing and toys for special needs children. The couple founded this company after realizing they couldn't find kid-friendly sensory tools that wouldn't fit for their family's needs.

"All of my expertise as an occupational therapist goes into every part of these companies and our products. Improving the lives of children with special needs is our driving mission. My husband and I, along with our growing team of experts, spent much of our waking hours building this Dream spent. Everything we do is kid-friendly, affordable, and most importantly, makes a real developmental and therapeutic difference in children's lives. And everything we do is guided by these values.
We design, innovate, and iterate, and we don't do it in a vacuum. We reach out to explore the therapy community and to parents constantly to find opportunities for improvement and inspiration to recreate. Our weighted compression vest is a good example. After we came up with the concept, we heard from parents who wanted more adjustability, so we added Velcro. Then we heard it was too big for some kids, so we got more smaller sizes. Then we shared ideas for cool vest graphics so everyone could vote on the final decisions. We don't know everything, but we know that you are helping to make our products better, "explained Aviva.

The products are designed to help children with Autism, Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder, Anxiety, Motor Delays, Visual Motor Integrations, among others.
