The Best Sensory Autism Items

Ever since Antonio has been diagnosed with autism I am always on the lookout for awesome products and ideas. As time goes on I keep learning more and more about him and autism. What I have learned about Antonio is that he loves sensory and needs more of it. He loves getting pressure applied on here so there are some great items that we like to use now.

Here are The Best Sensory Autism Items:

    1. Use this vest to provide calming deep pressure to kids and adults with autism or sensory challenges. This durable vest features 2mm neoprene similar to the fabric used for wet suits. It is perforated allowing it to breath which will prevent your clients from over heating.
