DEEP TOUCH PRESSURE
The science behind weighted compression vests is called Deep Touch Pressure (DTP). DTP is simply distributed weight across the body. If you'd like to read more about the natural benefits of DTP, we wrote a guide to it here.
DTP releases serotonin in the body which turns into melatonin, as well as decreased nervous system activity. These combine to give a feeling of calm, relaxation and naturally improved sleep. If you'd like to dive into the studies about weighted compression vests and the science behind them, we wrote an article on it here.
1% OF ALL SALES GO TO THE UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON AUTISM CENTER
At Harkla, our goal is to help those with special needs live happy and healthy lives. To continue this mission, we donate 1% of every sale to the University of Washington Autism Center. This money gets split between providing families in the Seattle area access to therapy they can't afford, funding cutting edge autism research, and our annual scholarship to the University of Washington Autism Center's APEX Summer Camp.

Great product!!! Exactly what I was looking for to put on my son. I used the sizing chart to determine size and it was spot on.
I did expect more of this product. It seemed promising to deal with my hyperactive child. I thought it will be more comfortable because some parents described it as a big hug. But I actually think that the fabric is durable but not soft at all. I bought to help him to sit during school tasks but unfortunately didn't work for us. He accepted the vest but didn't like the smell of it and seems uncomfortable. It may work with your kid but my mom intuition made me return it.But! Try it. It may work for you and I think we should try everything to help our kids to succeed. The amazing thing about amazon it the customer satisfaction or the money back.
The stitching looks durable and the vest material is light enough for my hot natured daughter. We noticed a difference in her demeanor and how much less she walked on her tippy toes.
This vest has been instrumental in assisting my child to manage anxiety and sensory impairment.
This vest is a great way to keep my son, who is on spectrum focused.
