The Benefits of Weighted Blankets for Sensory Processing Disorders

 

Does your child have sensory processing disorder? Sensory processing disorder (SPD) often accompanies other disorders, such as autism and ADHD/ADD. The disorder makes cognitive processing and responding to sensory stimuli difficult.

SPD can leave the person with under- or oversensitivity to anything involving one or more senses. When an autistic child pulls away from an embrace, she may be experiencing uncomfortable sensations from the touch of her loved one. Anxiety when feeling uncomfortable and fatigue are typical in those dealing with sensory processing disorder.

Calming a child when she is troubled and encouraging her body to rest are possible with a Mosaic Weighted Blanket®.

Employing deep pressure touch stimulation (DPTS), a weighted blanket provides the comfort of stability and helps the individual produce hormones that aid rest naturally.

Whether you prefer your child to lie underneath it or to drape it over her lap, the distributed weight applies a gentle but consistent pressure that feels reassuring. This pressure also creates a chemical response in her body that promotes serotonin production.

Serotonin tells the brain to take it easy and feel content. She will soon feel relaxed enough to quickly fall asleep when serotonin converts to the melatonin. Mosaic Weighted Blankets® work as a prescription-free supplement to medication and therapy when you and your family need extra help getting rest.
