I dont have ASD(Autistic Spectrum Disorder) but i thought this was really cool.

"Unlike the Beagle scarf-hoodie, SQUEASE is a jacket kinda haven for folks with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Fashionable and with-it, the jacket allows the wearer to apply deep pressure to their body, so that they can calm themselves and get over the sudden rush of anxiety. The integrated headphones reduce the sound level of high frequency noises like alarm bells or the sound of chairs scraping on a floor; soothing those with hypersensitive hearing. A comfortable cocoon for those with ASD, the SQUEASE is a smart looking jacket and not just therapy aid."

That's really neat, I am not familiar with the disorder, going to go look it up now.

Interesting.....yet fashionable.

I would hope that it would not be a permanent thing, though.
