    Has anyone here tried them for their difficult child's? Our Occupational Therapist (OT) suggested it for difficult child 2 today. The only way I could ever get him to try it would be if it was completely inconspicuous under regular clothes. If you've tried it, does it work? Any recommendations on where to purchase? Thanks!

    When difficult child was younger, at school they would use compression blankets when he was not in the classroom to calm him. Also we have used similar types of things at my school with a couple of students and it was helpful. I know my difficult child would never have agreed to wear one so I understand your concern.
