    So I'm now in contact with the president of the Autism Society of America and he said he would help plan some fun things for the 2018 Barefoot Autism Challenge. But what ideas do you guys have? Feel free to comment and let me know what works for you guys and I'll pass it on over to ASA.

    I really like the idea of a group barefoot presence at an autism event! A good way to reach out to others on the spectrum to let them know the benefits of better proprioception and sensory integration. We always go to the walk at the Mall of America here in MN so to do that there might mean making sure the MOA doesn't have some weird rule against barefoot or at least will make an exception for the event.

    Well there have been some people who have gone barefoot at Mall of America. In fact there was a barefoot event there yesterday. Security did talk to them and asked them to leave however. But some people had shoes in case they were asked.

    So perhaps best to beg forgiveness than ask permission. Got it ;).
