How We Got Started

For years we watched and listened to the challenges our friends and family with special needs children endured just to find basic items. There weren’t any one-stop shops that offered products specifically made for children and young adults with disabilities. Often the closest vendors were outside of Ireland, and their product prices were inflated by import taxes and customs fees. We watched as our loved ones walked through a mirror maze, and each time they thought they had found a solution for their child, another mirror was waiting for them to run into.

Well, not anymore! We worked closely with these friends and family members to map out the ideal online, one-stop shop for people with special needs children. After careful planning, partnering with local distributors, and organizing the ultimate catalog of useful products, our Otavo family was born.

Our Mission

The core purpose of our efforts is to make your life a bit easier. Special needs, autism, and SPD are by no means a walk through the park, but it’s a whole lot easier when a community comes together and lifts each other up. Otavo is a place you can rely on to find anything and everything for your children, teens, and young adults. Our goal is for you not to feel alone in this world and to know there’s a group of people who are there to help you get through it.

What We Provide

Our site will provide instant access to a catalog of innovative products. Over the last five years, a new wave of creative toys and tools specifically designed to aid kids with autism and sensory disorders has emerged. We’ve gone through an elaborate process to identify the best items on the market and will continue to refine and add to our collection.

If you’re new to items that are designed to help develop your child’s motor skills and overcome sensitivity issues, knowing which product to choose can be a bit overwhelming. Fear not, because Otavo is here to walk you through the process and help you make the best choice. Our listed products include clear and detailed descriptions, helpful video reviews, technical specifications, and customer testimonials. When you’re ready to purchase an item, you’ll know exactly what you’re ordering and what it should do for your child.

As a small startup, we prioritize having a relationship with our customers. You can always reach out to us so that we can answer your questions and point you in the right direction. If you’re having trouble finding a specific product, we’re more than happy to track it down and send it to you. As we said, Otavo is here to make life just a bit easier.

How Our Products Help Your Children

Children with Autism, Special Needs, and SPD sometimes need a boost to develop certain skills and methods to relieve anxiety during stressful situations. We have products such as sensory chew toys that come in stylish options that your child can take anywhere. Often children who suffer from SPD find solace by chewing on oral objects, which can become an issue as they get older and enter school. Chewies are the best way to give children a discreet form of relief. As a parent, you can rest easy knowing your child always has a tool to use if life gets a little overwhelming.

Our catalog also contains toys and games to help your child develop fine motor skills. Products like the BusyBag and LockBoard are interactive brain games for your child to master. They’ll practice important skills, like tying shoes, opening various locks, and creative thinking.

These toys and games aren’t just for your children but also for you–the parent, guardian, or caregiver. Frequent meltdowns and panic attacks can create a stressful environment. With the right product that helps soothe your child, a sense of normalcy will return to your life.

We know you worry about your kids, but when you see improvements in various aspects of their lives, you’ll become more confident as they get older and begin their journeys.
