The Medium Weighted Blanket is just the right weight for children who weigh approximately 75-85 lb.s (see dimensions) and is perfect for those with Autism, sensory processing disorders, sleep disorders, anxiety, ADHD, hyperactivity and more. A weighted blanket provides pressure and sensory input and can be used as a calming tool or for sleep. Essentially a weighted blanket calms and relaxes a person similar to the way a hug does. Our weighted blankets are made with non-toxic, washable plastic pellets. The pellets are evenly distributed in a quilted pattern so as to prevent weight shifting. The edges are fringed for additional sensory input. For extra comfort these blankets may be warmed in your dryer or cooled in your freezer. One side of the blanket is a solid calming blue, the other side is tie dyed. Dimensions: 36" x 54" Weight: 8 lbs (The suggested blanket weight is 10% of your weight plus 1lb but it is best to check with your physician or therapist.)
