Bean Bag Chairs Help People with Autism Spectrum Disorder to Calm Down

People on the autism spectrum can employ many different strategies to help improve behavior and mood. One way of helping a person on the autism spectrum is to make use of a bean bag chair. A bean bag chair is soft, comfortable, and is able to apply equal pressure across the person’s whole body. When a person sits in the bean bag chair, it has a cocoon effect and applies deep pressure touch evenly across the body. The pressure from the bean bag stimulates a neurological response that registers within the central nervous system, which in turn allows the body to alter its neurological patterns which helps calm a person down when they begin to show signs of aggression towards them self or others or who are prone to violent movements (also known as crashers). The bean bag also enables the person to become less sensitive to touch and prevents any opportunities for the person to hurt themself during the process of sitting in the bean bag chair.
