Weighted blankets are a comfort to individuals with autism, sensory processing disorder, anxiety, Tourette’s syndrome, ADHD and can enhance sleep and calm anxiety and stress. Weighted blankets and lap pads are made from synthetic, machine washable pellets that provides the body with a deep pressure experience.
Weighted Lap Pads are an excellent tool for classroom environments. They are an excellent tool to help children stay seated and focused during seated activities.
