Josh got some new clothes!! Just kidding, it is something called a 'weighted vest'. Josh's Occupational Therapist thinks this may help with balance. Alot of kids that have balance problems need some help to know where in space they are. I don't know if that makes sense or not, but he has a low sensory input and his body doesn't always know where he is. He walks too fast or off balance because of it. So you add weight to him and somehow that forces his body to pay more attention. So we got it and we'll give it a whirl!
It has two pockets in front that hold 1lb weights.
Happy Easter! (a little late)
