Weighted vests have been used with Early Childhood population with the diagnoses of Autism/PDD, neuromuscular delays, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, and ADHD/ADD. The weighted vests are easy to put on and take off. Postural stability is noted, with noticeable gait patterns of hypotonic children and improved weight-shifting patterns during functional floor/table reaching activities.
I am so glad that you are making these GREAT vests. They are so superior to what was available before. When I saw them at the workshop, I decided to try one. I liked it and so did the children, and so do the therapists and teachers I work with. We have gotten quite a few from you. And all the students that are using them are now wearing them within the regular classroom settings.
You sent us a weighted vest, size medium for my little boy. I was worried that it could look a bit strange, bit it's really adorable. I think all the kids in his classroom could want one and they don't even need the weights!
