Sensory Weighted Blanket and Cover by Tink n Stink – 12lb (5.5kg)
Weighted blankets are an effective sensory resource. They can help sensory-seeking adults and children calm their body and minds, which can result in a peaceful night’s sleep. The weight exerted by the blanket can help to relieve anxiety, stress and insomnia. Weighted blankets can be useful to those with Autism and other sensory processing disorders by providing calming sensory input. Weighted blankets can be used to relieve and ease melt down situations, whilst at home or in school or sensory room environments.
