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
Visit CalmingHugs.Com for more information on each of their sensory products.
