This vest is like a reassuring hug, perfect for helping to calm down, focus or cope with sensory overload. The steady proprioceptive input and compression around the trunk are especially soothing for those with sensory challenges. The additional weight can act as a filter to help people engage the mind toward important matters, such as reading and writing. Kids even ask to wear it.
