Kids Lose It In Lycra – Fun Compression Wear!


Flower Power Compression Garments – Top with Faux Cape (Large, X-Large, XX-Large) currently discounted to $49.95 US

I’ve come across a website that sells compression clothing for special needs children:

One of the best ways to develop and improve products, for use by occupational and physical therapists who work with children, is to meet them in person and hear what works – or doesn’t work – in the field. Children can be challenging clients to treat because, quite often, their focus is on “being cool” and “fitting in” with their peers, rather than achieving strength, stability and coordination.

“OTs have lamented to me that kids don’t want to wear compression clothing,” says Diana Hohmann, senior brand manager for FlagHouse Special Needs. “Kids with Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Sensory Processing Disorders (SPDs) and more, who need the benefits of deep pressure – such as posture bolstering, alertness, mental focus, body awareness, etc. – don’t get excited about putting on drab, uncomfortable compression clothing and then wearing it in front of their friends. And I don’t blame them!
