Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look
at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to
help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or
other special needs!
If you're looking for stylish sensory integration solutions,
look no further than Calming Hugs! Calming Hugs offers a
variety of weighted, sensory-friendly products for children and
adults who crave sensory input.
Weighted products have been proven to benefit individuals with
ADHD, autism, sensory integration disorders, and much more.
According to the Calming Hugs website, "Deep touch pressure
from weighted materials is believed to reduce sensory
sensitivities, to improve the nervous system state, and to increase
potentials for endurance of task attention and persistence."
Their catalog of weighted products include:
- Stylish vests for all ages
- Weighted stuffed animals
- Lap pads
- And much more
