These blankets provide deep pressure stimulation, which helps children to calm down, relax, rest and improve anxiety levels.
Many sensory seeking children find the weight and deep pressure input to be calming, as it feels like they are being given a hug. Made in a soft, breathable material to reduce potential overheating for the child. All blankets are red on one side with a complimentary colour on the reverse.
Can help children with poor proprioceptive awareness. This is because they provide extra sensory feedback which lets the child know where they are. It is advised that weighted equipment should be no more than 5-10% of the child's body weight. Available in three weights. Hand wash only. Adult supervision required.
Safety and careful monitoring is a priority. This weighted blanket should be used at the direction of a professional therapist or by a caregiver who has been advised and trained in its use and application.
