When the child is awake, drape it across his lap or around his shoulders. The deep pressure touch stimulation brought about by the blanket will produce serotonin in the child, which is a hormone that will help to calm him down and produce a happier frame of mind.
A weighted blanket can provide a sense of calm for a wide range of individuals, including those with some of these disorders: Autism, ADHD, SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder), Anxiety, PTSD, Insomnia, Restless Leg Syndrome, and many other sleep disorders! It’s almost like a weighted blanket could solve the world’s problems, right?
Have a child with autism? This is a wonderful gift. Autism Caterpillars are used by schools and other agencies who teach children with Autism. These simple, soft, and darling caterpillars are weighted down with beans and have a sweet, soothing effect on an autistic child. This new project will involve a little pouring, a little stitching, a little assembly and lots of love. #caterpillar #Autism #toy #sensory #service #womensconference
