 The Squeeze Machine. Originally designed by Temple Grandin, PhD, one of the most famous autistic individuals today and the inspiration behind an HBO special. Drawing on her own experi- ences, Grandin developed the ingenious system to provide deep touch stimulation evenly and laterally. Studies have shown that deep pressure has a calming effect for hyperactive and
autistic individuals.
