£656 Pledge for Specialist Weighted Vest

£656 Pledge for Specialist Weighted Vest

The mother of an 11 year old girl who has a diagnosis of autism and Ehlers Danlos Syndrome applied to us for help to fund a weighted vest and blanket.  The girl has significant difficulties with body awareness and vestibular processing which result in balance and coordination problems and many other difficulties which affect her day to day activities.  Her OT's recommendation of a chain weighted blanket and weighted vest will hopefully help to relieve the agitation and anxiety she feels and improve her insomnia.  ACT were very pleased to be able to make this pledge and hope that these items will be of great benefit.
