Make your own SPD Products?
I am wondering if anyone has every heard of making their own sensory products (vests, weighted blankets). I found this website that has a download of a book showing a new sew method.
My son is almost 2 and has been diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder. I am a stay at home mom and will do whatever it takes to help him, but money tends to always be an issue. If someone could let me know on an option like this. I am supposed to buy a Pressure Vest and those start at $70.http://efficiencygene.com
These look like some great resources. I hope they help you and so many other struggling parents (finding the money and resources for therapeutic interventions is difficult for a lot of us!). I would love to know if anyone has used these/made these as well. Let us know!! A great find, as far as I am concerned. Homemade weighted products are definitely doable (and many have done it) if you work with your OT on the proper weight, use, and time frame to wear it.
Just so you know there are also some other ebay alternatives and cheaper weighted products (often) on the ebay auction listed on my weighted blankets page
. You can see if you can find anything affordable that way too.
Meanwhile... has anyone made their own weighted products? Anyone used either of the above resources? Looking forward to hearing from others!
