Covered in Comfort's Turtle Shaped Weighted Blanket is a therapy tool providing pressure and sensory input for individuals with Autism or other special needs. The pressure of the blanket provides proprioceptive input to the brain which releases a hormone called serotonin. Thus, the weighted blanket provides a calming effect for the individual. Weighted Blankets are very successful in relieving stress, promoting sleep, relaxing the mind and body for individuals with Sensory Processing Disorder, Asperger's Syndrome, Down Syndrome, ADHD, and Cerebral Palsy. The "Oh So Adorable" Turtle Weighted Blanket can even be warmed in the dryer or cooled in your freezer! Bonus Points: Made with non-toxic materials in USA, the weighted turtle CAN be machine washed.
