Weighted Therapy and Weighted ideas for Children

A weighted blanket or lap pad is a therapeutic tool which is made with weights to provide proprioceptive input for the body.

Proprioceptive input means awareness of ones body position in space.
The effect is similar to that of being swaddled.

Weighted therapy can help with:
  • Helping your child sleep through the night,
  • Reduce anxiety and stress
  • Ease restlessness and irritabillity
  • Prevent or short circuit a melt down
  • Improve focus
