We often talk about supporting children with autism, sensory processing dysfunction, ADHD, and other diagnoses, but children grow up to be adults, and often continue to need ongoing therapeutic support. Weighted blankets can help support the needs of children and adults alike.
The benefits of weighted blankets can be found through the effects of Deep Touch Pressure (DTP). DTP increases the levels of serotonin, therefore decreasing nervous system activity and the levels of anxiety and stress. DTP has also been shown to improve sleep and increase focus.
Harkla is proud to provide 5-pound and 7-pound blankets to benefit children. However, now is the time to expand our line of weighted blankets so more people can benefit!
To do this, we have launched a Kickstarter campaign. We are using the Kickstarter platform because we feel it is the fastest way to get our larger sized blankets in the hands of those who need them. By using Kickstarter to help us pre-order, we can afford to launch our new blankets and colors all at once, and we know exactly how many people want each size and each color.
