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.
