The Benefits of Weighted Blankets for Autism Spectrum Disorders(ASD) 

 

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) describes five disorders that fall under the category of adhdblankets.jpgpervasive development disorders, and they include:

  1. Autism
  2. Asperger Syndrome
  3. Childhood Disintegrative Disorder
  4. Rett Syndrome
  5. Pervasive Development Disorder not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS).

Children afflicted with one of these disorders typically have problems communicating, engage in repetitive actions or behaviors, lack social skills and show slow cognitive development. Symptoms of ASD can be seen in children as young as 18 months old.  

These children and their parents face many challenges each and every day, and while there are several treatments and therapies designed specifically for children with ASD, the Mosaic Weighted Blanket® can be an enormous help to both the patients and their families.

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.

At bedtime, cover your little one with the weighted blanket to once again help the production of serotonin, which will lead to the production of melatonin--the hormone that helps us achieve a peaceful, restful night's sleep.
