We use sewchris2642's recipe. I have found that the neon food coloring colors the play dough better and lasts longer.
My ds has mild hypotonia and he wears sure steps http://www.surestep.net/ to help support his ankles. From what I understand pronation of the ankles is common with kids that have low muscle tone. They have helped my ds quite a bit with his stability.
Congrats maciascl, and yay for pell grants goldfishkate!

I really hate those adds right now

Can I join, I've been lurking for a while. My dh was laid off at the beginning of September. Unemployment has not been enough to keep up with the bills. We have 5 kids, we were already as frugal as we can be so there isn't anything to cut. We are packing up and going to stay with my sister in another state until we can get back on our feet. We can only take essentials with us, we can't afford to rent a truck. This is really just devastating me

Our developmental pediatrician said that some kids, esp high functioning autism spectrum, like to have their gross motor...
I once had a very nice neighbor who loved to give my dd stuff, her daughters were grown and she missed them terribly. This was stuff I would never get for my dd, boxes full of heavily scented soaps, perfumes, lotions, boxes of fast food toys. It bothered me but I didn't have the heart to ask her to stop or to keep them from dd so I don't have any advice for you.

Not true... the job market is terrible and I guess no one wants to hire a 7 month pregnant woman - not even telemarketing which I thought would be a sure shot. DH is...
