A weighted vest for Demonte to help calm him during active school time

Posted Mar 1, 2024
Demonte's physician suggested trying a weighted vest during stressful times at school. There are many benefits to wearing a weighted vest, including reduced anxiety. This breathable vest will help keep him calm and relaxed.

Demonte is 9 years old and lives in WI

Demonte is an amazing and resilient young boy living in a foster home with his younger brother. He is working hard to catch up at school and really enjoys reading, basketball, and watching Power Rangers and Spider Man. He is very much a big brother in the home as he helps out with an older foster child who has minimal communication skills. He is truly a Superhero!
