Yes/No HD Simplified Touch-Revisited

Hello RettGirls.

After meeting so many people this weekend who showed an interest in Abby's iPad (and the programs on it) I wanted to revisit a previous post where I demonstrated the app YES/NO HD by Simplified Touch.

There have been a few changes. The best is the whole app with all the features you will see in the video below, are now included for the low price of $3.99. You will see in the video that this is more than worth the price for what girls like ours are looking for.

Good Day RettGirls!

This app and MORE can be found by clicking on our iPad review button on our home page or by clicking here.

Below you will find a video demonstration of this incredible app and all of its features!

X Panda R82 High Low Dynamic Seating System

Good Day RettGirls!

This week I want to tell you about the X Panda R82 High Dynamic Seating System.

I came across this awesome seat last week while visiting am incredible Rett family. Their daughter Brooklyn had the X Panda R82 High Low Dynamic Seating System that you see above.

You can find this system at in our Product Reviews under Positioning and Mobility!

I was so impressed I took out my phone and starting clicking away. Not only could they use this as a TV chair, they could use it for just about anything.

They took it to the table where it can be pumped up or down to fit whatever table or desk she is at. It has lateral side rests that keep her from leaning (an all important function with RettGirls)

It has an incredible head rest. Belts, straps and even a vest for those with extremely low tone.

Not only does it go up and down it can be tilted for feeding or for sleep. It has inside and outside bases for the ability to cruise the house or the neighborhood.

This X Panda R82 High Low Dynamic Seating System comes in 4 sizes and has many more accessories!


From the company website:

x:panda is a multi-adjustable dynamic seat, delivered in 4 different sizes - each seat with up to 10 cm in seat width and depth adjustment coupled with sliding back growth.

The back is dynamic, making it possible for the child to extend and push back against relatively light resistance and then regain the desired sitting position. The back is lockable which could be preferred in feeding situations. The back can also be angled to make it possible to seat the child with either an open or closed hip angle.

Accessories include:

Head supports For correct position and support.

Non-dynamic gas spring

Swing-away side supports

Fixed side supports

Vests and belts For added support in a variety of possibilities.

Overarm supports To support the upper arm. The support is adjustable in height and width.

Tray (Please find more tray options in the accessories section.)

Arm rest for tray Provides forearm support.

One size
Toy bar for tray Grab rail fits in the same position.

One size
Grip handle for tray

One size
Quick lock For fast and easy adjustment of the side supports.

One size
Foam back plate Fills out the gap between seat and back.

Armrest Adjustable in height and angle.

Seat wedges Provide control and positioning.

I really do think you will LOVE this all-in-one Seating System!

Have a great week!

Beds by George

Good Day RettGirls!

This week at we are featuring the hand crafted safety bed by Beds by George. You can find this gorgeous bed and more like it in our Product Reviews under Sleep!

This bed actually came to my attention when I first started by insurance fight for a safety bed for my own RettGirl. After several years of fighting insurance, I was finally presented with a well padded hospital bed that my now almost 7 year old is climbing or scooting out of. Even with 18-inch-high padding from head to toe, the best bed our insurance would pay for is NOT a safety bed.

The beds at Beds by George are absolutely gorgeous and custom made. They come in 2 styles with more choices than you can count.

Whether you choose one of the Dream series or Slumber series we think you will find these beds an awesome choice for a safety bed without that box or medical look of some other beds.


Testimonials from actual customers:

Guillarmo from California said, "It is gorgeous and doesn't have the institutional looks, feels, and is solid. Thank you. I just can't stop looking at it. It is a work of art!"

Kathy from Maine said, "This is exactly what we have been looking for!"

Annabelle from Ohio said, "this is so beautiful."

Cindy from Indiana said, "the bed is working great! It is so sturdy...we could do an infomercial."


We have heard that the company is incredible to work with and they provide sample letters for insurance and funding sources.

Have a great week everyone and get some sleep!
