I have used a weighted blanket for my 9 year old son with ADHD for several years with great success. I use a smaller version on his lap for long car rides and/ or if he has to stay seated for an extended period of time (seat work for school). Each night at tuck in time I place his largest weighted blanket over him on top of his covers and it helps calm him into a peaceful sleep. I believe a lot of kiddos and adults could benefit from this simple and effective tool. Give it a try… you will be surprised !
