Time for Back to School

Posted by Spoonie Threads Staff on

It’s that time of year ✏️ Back to School! 🍎  

Don’t wait for the last bell to ring--it's time to get ready for school and don’t forget to stock up on your Spoonie Threads favorites! 

Here are some tips for parents of kids with IEPs to start the school year right: 

  1. Get all necessary medical appointments done ahead of time and have all paperwork ready for the school nurse. Digital copies make it easier to send via email! 
  2. Have agreed upon accommodations and services in place that fit the student’s needs. Make sure they are relevant!
  3. Document everything and keep all your paperwork organized 
  4. Establish a good routine with a consistency in activities as well as study and bed times  
  5. Know an IEP meeting can be called at any time if you have concerns

School not for your family? Here are 18 Tips to Help Children With Special Needs Thrive While Learning at Home.



A soft jersey tee with concealed snaps at BOTH shoulders! 

Why use snaps? Zippers are heavy, and can feel cold and uncomfortable on your skin. Our low-profile snaps have a soft fabric backing, and were carefully sourced to be MRI-friendly. Unlike zippers, our snaps can also be used to secure loose lines during treatment. 

Snaps provide quick access to broviacs, central lines, and chemo ports without removing clothing for those who are recovering from surgery or to make dressing easier for people with limited mobility. 

Ostomy Bag Covers--no fuss, no mess 


Why use a cover? This lightweight, water-resistant ostomy cover provides an extra layer of security between your ostomy bag and clothing – so you can say goodbye to leaks and stains!  

We love the subtlety of this new design! At a first glance, a stylized peace sign is evident, but a closer look reveals the more playful #2 reference. Wear this when you want to let your fun-loving side show. Mix and match this bag cover with our other colors or prints to show your ostomy attitude! 

Stop messes before they happen 


Why use pads?  Our soft G-Tubeand Trach pads protect your skin from irritation and absorb leakage around surgical sites. Unlike other feeding tube pads, our pads do not have rough edges or irritating exposed seams. 

Outer surface made from soft, water-resistant polyurethane laminate (PUL) 

Inner layer made from absorbent terrycloth 

Skin-facing surface made from moisture-wicking microfleece 

Waistband & Insulin Pump Belt help you stay active 


This soft stretch waistband is lightweight and hugs the body, providing mild compression. This streamlined look is made from soft, stretchy, and sweat-wicking material.  

 The Insulin Pump Belt is a customer favorite! The 7-inch zipper provides enough room to store your meds, phone, insulin pump, and more – but so comfy, you’ll forget you’re wearing it.
