Gadget Review – Status Squares

Many of you are probably wondering – What are Status Squares?

In short, they are the most simple, clear, and immediate way of letting those close to you know how you’re feeling.

  • Simple – I just have to choose which of my eight squares I need to have on display
  • Clear – the image is a stick-man figure with a very short description of present feeling; they are also in bright colours that adds a fun element to very serious communication aides
  • Immediate – I keep them by my chair and it takes no more than a few seconds to change a square
  • They are small so if I need to take them out with me they are quite unobtrusive. Approx size: 1.75″ / 4 cm
My set of Status Squares – each square is double-sided –
and I highlight my current condition by putting it in the special clip.

My husband finds them extremely useful too as by checking on my current status square he gets a pretty good idea of how I’m feeling. That, by extension, gives him a clear indication of how to be with me (support me, be with me, or leave me alone).

I want to stress that I only review products and books that I own and use, without reference to supplier. None of my reviews are for ‘profit’. In fact the only ones I hope to profit are those of you who read my reviews and decide to give the product a go. They help me so I hope that they’ll help you.

This review is an exception in that I’ve contacted the company for permission to feature it in my Blog. I want to thank the wonderful cartoonist who created them, Hannah Ensor, of Stickman Communications.

On their website they have a fantastic range of communication aides. I suggest you could do worse than check it out. When I buy more products I’ll let you know about them.

Being creative is the mainstay of my life, and poetry, prose, and photography is where I express my deepest emotions. I also enjoy the challenge of design and create jewellery, fabric bags, and garments and home items in yarn. Diagnosed with ASD at the age of 68 after fifty years in and out of the mental health system, I now aim to explore and share my experiences over these years. Apart from blogs and short articles I'll share my life in my verse and images.
