CalmCare sensory compression shirts are manufactured extra-long to provide sensory input to all of the torso.
CalmCare shirts can be worn as clothing or undergarments and help children regulate their body and filter sensory information, which enables them to listen, focus and learn while staying calm, and become more self-aware.
CalmCare is designed to wear all day, every day to keep the sensory system calm. Reassuring, gentle pressure provides proprioceptive feedback (information received from muscles and tendons, concerning body movement and position).
CalmCare undergarments allow children to wear their favourite clothing (or school uniform) while enjoying the calming benefits and minimising meltdowns. All CalmCare undergarments have special external stitching for a seamless feel and stamped labelling for children with tactile sensitivity.

CalmCare is manufactured from a high quality, breathable, moisture-wicking, special sensory fabric which is durable and keeps the wearer cool, dry and comfortable all year round.
If your measurement is between two sizes, you are best choosing the smaller size.
My daughter is 7 years old and was diagnosed with autism. She has difficulty focusing, speech issues, and a tendency to meltdown when she doesn't get her way. I know that each child can respond to compression shirts differently, but in our daughter's case, she responded very positively. The change after she started wearing the vest was very noticeable and almost immediate. She listens more, is more focused, and responds more calmly when she could not get what she wants. She likes wearing the vest and would ask for it every morning. I wish we had gotten her the vests sooner.
This item was very helpful. It has helped my daughter keep focus at school and at home. It has allowed her to do more by filling up her stimulus needs.
