Obviously you didn't read that your product is out of my price range at the moment. $300 for 2 clothing items. The last set my son outgrew in 4 months. And he was measured by his OT so I know for a fact we had the right size. It's awesome you offer the program for kids who need services. But that's irrelevant when it comes to what I can spend out of my pocket to help my kid. So I asked for advice from fellow SN moms who might be able to point me to an affordable alternate. More kids would be able to benefit from your wonderful product if you had a more reasonable price point.

This! I hate when people want to "help" out the SN community but want to also charge out the ass for anything the famlies might need!

AND you know it couldn't possibly cost that much to manufacture. For real. It's like they know they have the patent.. They know people will buy it. So they mark it up a thousand percent.



And this SPIO response kind of pissed me off. 100% of profits go directly back into the company to fund therapy? Why not do 50% and deduct the other 50% from the cost to the consumer? They could probably increase their buyer market and turn the same profit.

I'm g lad you said it and not me.



It's like obviously that is going to be the best bet. And I could probably get it for Jake since he's stopped growing for like a year, but for moms who's kids are STILL growing, that's outrageous!
