Weighted Lap Blankets
Much like a weighted blanket, but on a smaller scale, a weighted lap blanket is a sensory tool that offers proprioceptive or deep touch pressure to legs as it rests lap when in a seated position. Some people with sensory processing disorder, autism or other conditions, may find touch can be overwhelming and even painful. This is known as tactile oversensitivity or tactile defensiveness. Research has shown that weighted blankets and weighted lap pads can help people with sensory processing challenges experience all the comforts of touch without feeling overloaded.
Weighted Lap Blankets are not recommended for children under the age of 3. If you have ANY concerns about your child’s physical well-being (muscular, bone, sensory, vascular, etc..) you should consult with your child’s doctor and/or occupational therapist prior to using a weighted lap blanket. Always follow your medical professional guidelines for use.
