In this week’s episode, I speak with Ethan Sack about his autism parenting journey. Next week I speak to his wife and learn about her experience from her perspective. It’s really interesting how people can experience the same thing differently.
About Ethan Sack:
Ethan graduated from Parchment High School in 2001 and worked in the grocery business/food manufacturing until 2022 when I joined my wife’s business as co-owner of our adult foster care facility that we run out of our home. We currently live in Lakeview, Michigan and I have 3 children, Camron (17), Hayleigh (5), and Brigham (2).

Learn More About The Hoglet
The Hoglet by Hedgehog Health is one of the coolest sensory tools I’ve seen in a long time. My youngest absolutely loves his Hoglet. The Hoglet was created by a Special Education teacher to appeal to autistic people, people with ADHD, and other sensory-seeking learners, as well as people who just love to fidget.
The Hoglet is a plug-and-play wireless computer mouse with a specially-made silicone cover. The Hoglet is covered in tiny nubs, kind of mimicking the look of well, a Hedgehog. The cover provides satisfying tactile sensory input which many sensory seekers benefit from. It’s perfect for classrooms, computer labs, working from home, or just bringing color and fidget fun to cubicles everywhere.
The Hoglet is made of food-grade silicone. It’s durable, super easy to clean, fun to use, and comes in 5 vibrant colors. For more information, visit Amazon and search for “Hoglet computer mouse” of click here.
