TACTILE & PROPRIOCEPTIVE INPUT
The science behind the Harkla Body Sock is called Tactile and Proprioceptive Input & 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.
By providing DTP to the whole body and adding resistance to every movement, children get extra proprioceptive input with the body sock. It promotes body awareness - knowing where your body is in space. Body socks can give a feeling of calm, relaxation and incresase focus & attention. If you'd like to dive into the studies about body socks 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.
"AS A BUSINESS COMMITTED TO SUPPORTING FAMILIES, HARKLA HAS GENEROUSLY PROVIDED MULTIPLE SCHOLARSHIPS SO THAT CHILDREN WITH AUTISM AND ADHD CAN ATTEND OUR SUMMER CAMP AT THE UW AUTISM CENTER. WE'RE GRATEFUL FOR HARKLA'S SUPPORT!"

Had a coupon and thought we would try it. Used by 14 year old with high functioning ASD. It�s only been a week but she loves it and uses it with good results when upset or has sensory overwhelm.
My son loves his body sock! He puts it on as soon as he gets home from school and he seems much more settled and happy than he usually is after school.
My son loves this. The largest size works for him and he�s 6 ft. Wish it came in a little larger size but it works and is used everyday. I bought the snap closure version.
I got this for my most sensory seeking child. He climbed right inside, loved it, and asked to wear it for the rest of the day, to bed every night, and many more times. It's very helpful in terms of sensory input and its calming effect. It's also held up to a lot of abuse, as sometimes I find both my six year old and my eight year old in it at once (!!). I like that the material is thick enough to be strong and provide a good resistant stretch. Great product.
I used it for sensory intergration for my son. It is very calming and it helps with transitioning from one task to another.
