I’m starting something new here on Pediatric OT Tips and I’m extremely excited about it! Every two months, I’m going to feature a very special person who makes a difference in the lives of special needs children in a big way. The individuals that will be featured are committed and compassionate and have taken action to open doors for children with special needs, and I’m looking forward to sharing their stories.

Tereson Dupuy had a problem, and not only did she come up with an idea to solve that problem, she turned her idea into a multi-million dollar business! Tereson’s son, Eden, was born with severe eczema and suffered from chronic diaper rash. After trying every cloth diaper on the market to no avail, she realized that chemicals and the moist cotton from the diapers were causing the rash. Solution…FuzziBunz® cloth diapers! Tereson created a modern cloth diaper, that is soft, easy-to-use, and eliminates chemicals and diaper rash! To top it off, she’s expanding her business to reach all ages to truly bring comfortable products that meet the entire lifespan of an individual.
Not only is Tereson a cloth diaper expert, she also has a passion for business. She established TeresonDupuy.com, which is an amazing platform that assists entrepreneurs in creating successful businesses. Her lessons focus on perseverance, patience, pride and passion – the 4Ps!

When Tereson’s son Eden was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, a form of Autism, her family and community were extremely supportive. She also discovered support and information through Autism Speaks, a national advocacy organization dedicated to funding autism-related research and helping families impacted by autism. Read on as Tereson’s shares how she is “giving back.”

“…in Eden's honor, FuzziBunz® will donate $1 for every "Light It Up Blue" diaper we sell to Autism Speaks. The diapers are the same price as the all the other FuzziBunz® cloth diapers—so I hope you'll simply add the Light It Up Blue diaper to your stash and know that, by doing so, you're helping families like mine cope with autism and that you're contributing to our nation's plight to find a cure.” Read more about Tereson’s advocacy by clicking HERE to visit her website.
A sincere thanks to Tereson Dupuy for making a difference by supporting Autism Speaks!
