Garmen Vivofit Junior

This was passed on to me by a parent of a client. You can get them from Target - they help to motivate your kids and for those who have children with ASD, it's a great way to help them get through the daily routines without you having to prompt all the time. Great for any kids to complete their chores and earn points that they can cash in. Has an app. Retails for about $80. You Tube link below.
