Do Weighted Vests Help With Anxiety?

Do Weighted Vests Help With Anxiety?

Hi folks, my guy (6) is back in school! Yay! But the noise and chaos of the environment is stressing him out. Boo! Kiddo's teacher has been great about outfitting the room with things to help him adjust (earmuffs, a trampoline, movement breaks), but he's still having a tough time dealing with the very different vibe of school. He wears a "huggy tee" most days, but I'm curious about weighted vests. Does anyone have any feedback on them to share?
