‘The vest helps him when he needs it, it helps him concentrate at school and he seems to be less overstimulated’
Bauke (9 years old) has been wearing a pressure vest for a couple months now. We chose to use a pressure vest since he used to come home very overstimulated from school and he was hard to reach in busy situations.
‘The vest helps him during exciting and busy moments’
Because he has Asperger’s it’s harder for him to be aware of his body. The Squease vest helps him in times that are hard for him, such as during tests in school or when visiting the dentist. In the beginning he didn’t really believe the vest would help him but now he knows he has to wear it to school and it helps him. He now inflated and deflates it whenever he feels he needs to.
‘He puts the vest on by himself’
When he had to go to a dental appointment he chose to wear the vest himself. The vest helps him when he needs it, it helps him concentrate at school and he seems to be less overstimulated.
