I recently purchased a weighted blanket for a student in my class with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Oppositional Defiance Disorder and Attention Deficit Disorder. From the moment the blanket arrived, my student, his family and I were most impressed. The fabric used was strong, sturdy and plain which was great due to the age of my student. The way the product arrived in lovely wrapping with suggested ways to use it was fabulous. It was highly evident that a lot of care and dedication went into hand crafting the product. My student independently accessed the blanket on a regular basis and used it as a self-calming technique while sitting in our classroom and in other settings such as the library and hall. All the students in my class were extremely supportive of the student who was using the blanket. It proved to be an excellent addition to the repertoire of strategies being implemented to assist with student well being and behaviour management strategies. Thank you to the Holistic Services team who were a delight to deal with. I look forward to purchasing additional blankets in the future to support my students.
