The #1 Product for Supporting Autistic Children Dealing with Head Banging & Self Injury


Children with autistic spectrum disorders may commonly use self destructive behavior, namely head banging, to express pain, confusion or overwhelming feelings to calm themselves with the rhythmic nature.

Guardian Helmets were uniquely and specifically designed to provide maximum protection using an innovative smart molecule technology that locks tightly on impact, dispersing the absorbed energy before returning to it’s fluid state.

By utilizing Guardian’s autism helmet head banging becomes less destructive and more manageable, without sacrificing comfort.


  • The hook and loop chin strap combined with adjustable laces in the back, enables the soft helmet to custom fit each persons head
  • LYCRA surrounds the outer shell, allowing air to flow throughout and prevent the wearer from enduring any extra heat
  • Medical grade, lightweight and breathable with rate sensitive material
  • Guardian’s autism helmets have undergone rigorous load impact testing
  • Full head coverage, enhanced ear protection and offers 100% peripheral vision
  • No metal or hard plastic components or parts


Any kind of high impact or even repetitive smaller impacts to the head can lead to serious long-term brain issues. Every individual and case is different, but for parent the concern that their child may cause brain damage through repetitive head banging is a legitimate one. With Guardian’s autism helmet head banging becomes less impactful and less likely to cause long-term effects.

Yes, but some protect better than others or in different ways. Guardian’s soft protective helmets were specifically designed for impact protection with repetitive hits in mind, originally developed for sports purposes, then improved for medical grade use and FDA registered. Our autism helmets provide 360 degree protection, including advanced ear and chin protection, and use patented smart molecule technology to minimize impact damage.

Here are the most common triggers that may have your child engage in head banging or and other self destructive behavior to look out for:

  • When in pain or general discomfort.
  • When emotionally overwhelmed
  • When confused or disoriented and unable to communicate it effectively
  • When under-stimulated leading to a sensory deficit
  • As a nightly routine for tiring themselves out before bed
