The aim of this factsheet is to briefly summarise current scientific research about whether weighted blankets improve sleep in children with neurodevelopmental conditions. This factsheet is not intended to replace the advice of expert clinicians, but we hope that this summary of evidence will help parents and carers who are considering whether a weighted blanket might be appropriate for their child.
