Hood to Aid Autism

Leo Chao’s ‘Beagle Scarf’ was created to aid Autistic people in times of stress.  Some studies have shown music, textured toys and aromatherapy to be of great benefit in alleviating the stress and discomfort often associated with Autism.  The Taiwanese-born, American-raised designer created the scarf which can be gently wrapped around the head.  Inlaid speakers rest near, (but not too close) to the ears allowing the hood to play soothing music when activated by the wearer.  Customized aroma patches line the hood and pockets with a textured lining are also used within the design.  No word yet on whether the design will have a commercial release.
