The RideSafer works for many children with special needs. Using the tether strap along with the lap-shoulder seat belt will help keep the child properly positioned in the car. We’ve talked with parents who have used the vest with children who have needs from autism to cerebral palsy.
But as with most things in life, especially when it comes to children with special needs, it depends. We do offer a 15-day return policy for trying the vest to see if it will work for you. Just save the packaging in case it doesn’t and you need to send it back.
