Launched in 2005 by pediatric occupational therapist, Aviva Weiss and her husband, Haskel, Fun and Function LLC has been lauded for “normalizing” the experience of being different, and helping children achieve their fullest potential. Weiss was inspired to start her own company when she discovered that one of her children had sensory processing disorder. She was frustrated by the lack of kid-friendly products, inconsistent quality, and high pricing.
Today, pediatric therapists and parents value the innovative products from Fun and Function that build skills and self-esteem in children on the autism spectrum, with sensory processing disorders, speech/developmental delays, and other challenges. Daycare administrators, schools, and hospitals praise the craftsmanship and versatility of the products which foster inclusion, enabling children of all abilities to navigate their differences through play.
