Benefits of Compression Vests for Autism

  • Providing the deep pressure and sensory input these children often crave and that helps them to cope.
  • Can be effective within minutes to eliminate anxiety, temper tantrums, meltdowns, uncontrollable crying, hyperactivity, and aggressive behaviors.
  • Similar to weighted blankets, compression vests can bring comfort and help kids focus when studying and taking tests.
  • Promotes body awareness and proprioception system benefits, assisting with joint approximation, gait training, balancing and strengthening.
  • Easy to put on and take off, featuring hook-and-loop closures and adjustable sizing.
  • Durable and comfortable, often made of stretchy neoprene.
  • Both feel-good and functional, giving children the sensation of being hugged.
  • Some compression vests are designed to offer that hugged sensation where kids need it most: their upper arms and torso.
  • Washable in cold water.
