I am looking at getting J (12 yr old) a weighted blanket.
Has anyone here used one? If so did it help or not?
My OT has mentioned them to me several times now, and told me to order it threw "nannas weighted blankets". I've looked the site up and I'm looking at forking out $300 for one. J has tried a small lap blanket that the OT lent us for a week, and he loved it.
I was also wondering about warmth. Are they warm enough for winter or cool enough for summer? How does that work?
J currently has to sleep with 2 donas on, an air con (for noise and cooling) and he is still up and down all night pacing and doing stretching exercises. He tells me he over heats, I have heard that some spectrum kids/people have troubles with internal temp control.
Just just wanted to know what your experiences are.
