Weighted lap blankets are developed to help children calm and organise themselves in a seated position with deep pressure sensory input. Great addition to a regulation program for children in the classroom or for table top activities at home.
These segregated weighted lap bags are double-sewn into segmented pouches for maximum flexibility, strength and comfort. Filled with poly pellets, they are washable and the perfect resource for any sensory tool box.
Our weighted lap pads are filled with poly pellets (used in dolls / toys etc), as opposed to our other stainless steel filled lap bags. Poly pellet filled lap bags have the benefit of being a more affordable resource, while stainless steel filled lap bags are more expensive but are also less bulky as the pellets are smaller.
They are SAFE, washable, and proven highly effective in applying deep pressure.
Weighted blankets are one of the most effective tools for encouraging calming down, high energy sensory kids.
Weighted products are shown to be most effective in the following areas:
1. Improving body/body position awareness
2. Promoting calming and improve attention and concentration skills
3. Decreasing sensory seeking behaviours
Colours vary - usually blue / dark purple / black or similar (selected at random based on availability of stock).
