Many children and adults with Sensory Processing Disorders (SPD) find weighted vests, blankets, collars and lap pads to be calming. This video demonstrates one of my clients enjoying the sensation of wearing a backpack filled with bottles of sand. I also stuffed a dog toy inside so that she can enjoy deep pressure fun when pressing against a wall to make it squeak. She is often flapping her arms around so I added the socks to pull or hold onto for additional movement and deep pressure sensory stimulation
