There are 8 comments on Designing Protective Headgear for Teachers of Children with Autism

  1. Why do these teachers need head protection to begin with? It says they work with students who may become aggressive but doesn’t fully explain why that requires full time protection.

    1. Hair-pulling, being head-butted in the head or face, or being slapped in the face or head are aggressions that are experienced by SPED teachers. These caps could offer valuable protection. :)

    1. Hi Sonya! Thank you for interest! Diana and I are still working on improving our first prototype (as you see in the photo) so that it will be ready to manufacture and sell. So they aren’t for sale yet because we only made one right now, ha. But if you’re interested in learning more, feel free to email me at rnassar.michelle@gmail.com!
