Weighted blankets are particularly recommended for children with psychophysical disorders, including autism, Asperger's syndrome, ADHD, sensory processing disorders, etc.
In those children, proprioceptive receptors found in muscles, tendons and ligaments do not work normally. They perceive external stimuli as too strong or too weak. The sensory (weighted) duvet stabilises those receptors. It stimulates or mitigates them.
The weighted blanket is quite heavy (it weights from 10% to 15% of the child's body weight) and its pressure considerably increases the sensation of one's own body and its situation and limits auto-stimulating movements to a great extent. Children who fall asleep under weighted blankets unwind and focus more quickly, they sleep much more calmly (without any interruptions) and function during the day better.
The weighted blanket can be used during the day and night. In the evening, it is best to cover the child with the duvet 20 minutes before sleep. After that time the duvet can be replaced with a lighter one. You always have to make sure that the child can move underneath and that the duvet does not cover the neck.
For many parents, weighted blankets are a delivery from everyday problems, when the child has a crisis caused for instance by a change in an everyday ritual. Sensory duvets can be used during the night and day. Some children eagerly use them during a short afternoon nap, some of them just jump under them when they need to restore better body organisation.
Sensory duvets are to be dry-cleaned or washed by hand. When drying, it should be spread horizontally on the dryer, not hung. This prevents the duvet from deforming.
