Autism-Products presents The BIG Hug
The BIG Hug was designed to calm, reorganize and redirect the energy of children and adults living with autism or who are cognitively challenged and would benefit from deep pressure therapy. The BIG Hug has been found to be effective because it allows the caregiver to simultaneously apply different amounts of soft, wrap-around pressure to five separate areas of the body.
