Sites for sensory design, fidgets, products for sensory rooms, sensory integration, SPD, sensory processing disorder, autism and related sites that have pages and sections on sensory. As part of Living Labs rebranding and growth, and the enormous amount of response that our sensory posts, photos and shares have generated- we are opening an entire spectrum of resources focused solely on sensory. In healthcare this will be for the spectrum of health services and diagnosis communities that have shown positive outcomes with sensory integration including: the ASD and SPD communities; Alzheimer's, Dementia, and memory; pain management for children and adults; and more. This list will be the basis of a number of expanded resources, media and opportunities for patients, providers and creators including: - Parents and caregivers of any one or multiples of appropriate diagnosis. - Healthcare providers with evidence results in sensory including Occupational Therapists, Pediatricians, Palliative physicians and nurses, homecare health providers, physiatrists, pain management specialists and more. - The entire design community for sensory integration including sensory rooms, sensory spaces and special sensory facilities including: interior designers, lighting designers, sensory room and sensory gym designers and installers, Landscape Architects for sensory and healing gardens, mobile and permanent exhibit curators and designers of sensory and art for healing to name a few. - We also welcome management and providers at on-site dedicated health centers, group homes, living labs, Assisted Living, Hospitals, Children's Care Facilities and education from nursery to post graduate. - Those in industrial design, UX and experience design who have worked, or are looking to increase their practice such as: fidgets, multi-sensory environments, sensory integration in home or retail, swings and indoor and outdoor gyms, mats, LED lighting solutions; installers of sensory rooms, lighting and technology; multi-sensory bedding, those who have incorporated from the "tiny homes" movement and other creative use of sensory spaces, apps that work with items and environments of sensory integration, and of course individual creators of bespoke candles to weighted blankets to multi sensory walls and more. - We look forward to the input of leaders and decision makers in public spaces, Parks, landscape, communities and policy makers and implementers into sensory integration and accessibility into making more livable communities. - And of course all organizations, manufacturers, makers and retail sales organizations who specialize in sensory solutions! We already have started YouTube and G+ channels, two very successful Pinterest boards, several List.ly lists and will be launching sensorylabs.org. Please add your information to all of these places so you can join our community- connecting users, creators and providers for easier lives of dignity, independence and beauty!
Companies that only specialize in their own hosted landing pages for lead generation or sales; one pagers that may or may not include landing pages; one pagers that are within a group of a theme or themes for wordpress or another website building company. Alternatives to wordpress and hosting. These programs work heavily on conversion to emails and to sales, and have their own platforms. This focuses on program that enable you to collect email addresses and many can connect them with campaigns so you can easily give your users free downloads, eBooks, or even bonuses up to dally for sharing your content. Do note that most of these bill annually, or at least quarterly. Look to see if you will need to pay for an integration of an email tool (and what the costs and limitations of those may be) and what your hosting options are. When starting this list, I had in mind that we could easily and quickly put up a landing page to get any parts of the company moving quickly. Now I am not so sure the difference (other than a lot more cost) of getting an exclusive landing page site over whatever you're using already for websites- especially if you're using wordpress as many templates have a landing page option. **In my opinion, this is most valuable if they do the email collection and the email campaigns not just the landing pages.**

With April Fools Day just in the rear-view mirror, I thought it would be fun to count down the best pop "fools" in music. These are songs that you know and love, all of which contain the word "fool" in some variation in their titles. Everyone from the Doobie Brothers to Styx, and from Ike & Tina Turner to Rufus & Chaka Khan are represented on this list. There's a "Fool on the Hill," a "Fool in the Rain" and even a "Ship of Fools" here. So even if you consider yourself to be "Nobody's Fool," you must remember this, "Everybody's Somebody's Fool." And you may think you "Won't Get Fooled Again," but at some point in our lives "Everybody Plays the Fool." So whether you're "Kissing A Fool" tonight, or just playing "Foolish Games," deep down you know you still "Don't Want to Be a Fool." So don't be "Foolish," read on and have fun reminiscing about these "fools" in pop music.
Living Labs is built around theories from over two dozen design related professions, concepts and practices. To make life easier for all, to be functional for any age or ability without compromising beauty, dignity, or independence, we need to include the best of those who create smart spaces, products and experiences. It is not only inclusive in the people meant to be served by all design, it includes a vast array of inter-disciplinary fields, specialties and perspectives. Within this cross-section, here are trade associations to organizations that look at the important questions of what makes great design and how we can make it better. These are trade associations (many with events, publications and other services from learning to advocacy) that are important to one or more fields of the many design professionals we serve.
