Ep. 17: Co-Founder of TouchPoints, Child Advocate, Vicki Mayo

Episode 17 with Vicki Mayo, a foster and adoptive parent, child advocate and strong believer in reducing children's ACEs score. Vicki is the Co-Founder of the TouchPoints Solutions device that we like to refer to as a game-changing tool for parents and educators. A non-invasive neuroscientific wearable device that uses patent pending BLAST technology to relieve stress in as few as 30 seconds. Although not a sole substitute for providing children with more authentic intervention strategies or individualized teaching approaches, it's another tool for the parenting and educator toolbox. Learn more about Touchpoints and how many many parents and caregivers who have children on the spectrum have benefited from the wearable tool.
