Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is characterized by difficulty in communication, social interactions and repetitive thoughts or behaviors.
Unfortunately, individuals on the autism spectrum often get caught in a whirlwind of repetitive anxious thoughts or feelings, keeping the Sympathetic Nervous System in high alert.

This overstimulation often results in difficulty concentrating, increased anxiety in social situations, and trouble sleeping.

Deep Touch Pressure is widely accepted as a highly effective therapy for autistic individuals, and weighted blankets have been used by occupational therapists for years in autistic communities.

Weighted blankets can be a great tool for managing anxiety related symptoms for individuals on the autism spectrum with its use of tactile sensory input to calm the nervous system.
