My husband and I have been blessed by God to raise four children; two sons born to us and two daughters born for us. My adopted daughters both suffer from sensory issues. Weighted vests and blankets allow us to see movies in theaters, as well as other activities.
I found Anne's site when looking for a cooling vest for my oldest daughter, who cannot sweat due to a very rare genetic disorder. CIPA is a Hereditary Sensory and Autonomic Neuropathy (HSAN) that creates life-threatening conditions on a daily basis, as she overheats from weather/exercise extremes. A cooling vest will allow her up to 20 minutes of outdoor play/recess by keeping her body cool externally. A true life line!!
