Weighted Blankets

Weighted blankets for Autism Spectrum Disorder and sensory development

We all feel happier and more relaxed when being cuddled. A weighted blanket is just like a nice cuddle!

Whether the blanket is across the child’s lap or draped around their shoulders, the deep pressure touch stimulation will help your child to produce serotonin, which is a hormone the brain releases to make us feel happy and relaxed.

These blankets can be used both during the day and at night, as well as for other occasions when they may be needed such as long car trips and also plane trips.
