Help remove an educational barrier for a child

Normal Request
A student at Keane would greatly benefit from a compression vest due to sensory needs that are impacting his ability to participate fully in the school environment. Compression vests offer deep pressure that promotes a sense of calm, focus, and body awareness. If this student were able to receive the benefits of a compression vest throughout the day, we believe an educational barrier will be removed for this student. The link to the specific compression vest this student is in need of is below: (Size Small) Thank you!
