ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A TOOL TO HELP YOUR CHILD FEEL SECURE, CALM, AND FOCUSED?
Harkla’s weighted compression vest for kids with sensory issues, autism, and ADHD combines the sensory input tool with a wearable by applying pressure to sensitive areas of the body. Simply place the vest over your child's clothing, and watch your little one return to feeling grounded and in control.
A perfect addition to the classroom, pack the weighted compression vest with your child's school supplies for on-the-go sensory integration therapy. It works well on travel, too! Improve both their and your car rides with a vest providing deep pressure sensory input.
The weighted compression vest for kids is made out of soft neoprene and is built to last. Unlike other brands, Harkla has built-in ventilation using mesh to make sure your child stays cool while receiving the sensory integration therapy benefits.

Who Could Benefit From A Compression Vest?
Weighted vests are typically used for children with sensory issues, autism spectrum disorder, or ADHD. The vest helps the child calm down and focus better. You can read our article here on the benefits of weighted vests. https://harkla.co/blogs/special-needs/weighted-vests-autism
What’s The Difference Between A Weighted Vest & A Compression Vest?
Some vests you will find will provide only compression or only weights. These can work great if you only need one of those features for your child.
While both accomplish similar things, the compression is designed to help with your child's calmness from the deep touch pressure (https://harkla.co/blogs/special-needs/deep-pressure-therapy). The weight provides that, but also provides a groundedness that can come from the extra weight.

Fortunately, our vest is both a compression vest and weighted vest to give you the best of both worlds!
