Have you heard that weighted clothing can help your child deal with the day-to-day challenges of autism spectrum disorder or sensory processing disorder? Weighted vests are one way that children with autism, who often respond well to deep pressure, can receive the sensory input they need.
How can weighted clothing help my child?
Weighted and compression vests are designed to give your child that hugged sensation, without the trapped feeling some kids with autism can experience with a person-to-person hug.
Weighted clothing and accessories can help your child feel calm and secure, as well as manage anxiety and behavioral troubles like meltdowns and temper tantrums. Using weighted items can also improve concentration on tasks and in school.
