A Review of Research on the Use of Weighted Vests with Children on the Autism Spectrum
Morrison, Erin E.
Education, v127 n3 p323-327 Spr 2007
Occupational therapists working in the school system setting report using weighted vests as a technique to improve attention and sensory processing for students who have an autism spectrum disorder. Some critics, however, contend that this technique is used without evidence of effectiveness. This study examines the overall research available on the use of weighted vest with children on the autism spectrum to see what, if any, consensus concerning effectiveness exist regarding this practice.
