The Benefits of Weighted Blankets for Asperger's Syndrome
Taking its place at one end of the autism spectrum, Asperger’s Syndrome is characterized an intense intellectual interest in one or two specific subjects. What sets Asperger’s apart from other forms of autism is the relatively normal speech and cognitive development.
Using a weighted blanket can comfort someone with Asperger’s by replicating deep pressure touch stimulation. Mosaic Weighted Blankets® are made with weights and high-quality fabric to relax the users as if they were being held by a loved one.
Productivity and daily functioning tend to become an issues when someone with Asperger’s has difficulty getting much-needed restorative sleep. Without recuperative rest, a sufferer’s daytime hours can be plagued with emotional stress, loss of productivity, and fatigue.
Through DPTS, Mosaic Weighted Blankets® soothe the spirit and body by encouraging serotonin production. When serotonin breaks down and changes to melatonin, our bodies respond by gently falling into a deep, restful sleep. Maintaining sleep for the entire night is healthy for everyone involved and makes the daytime occurrences easier to deal with.
