Weighted Blankets have been found to help restless children to sleep easier. They are also very useful with the guidance of an Occupational Therapist for children with Sensory Integration Dysfunction, and found to help the child stay focused, alert, calm and organised. They can also help adults and the elderly who sleep better with blankets but find it difficult during the summer months to stay cool.
Weighted items such as Lap Bags and Weighted Wrist Cuffs provide a calming, deep pressure input to the body and are to assist children with concentration and calm. If they are correct, children will find them comforting and helpful.
Help to increase on-task behaviour in children with attention difficulties. They are not worn for long periods of time but with the help of an Occupational Therapist, the best routine and time for the vest to be worn is at its optimum.
