UCP and the Elsie Bellows Grant were able to purchase a new weighted sensory blanket for Jaiden. Jaiden is a sweet 4 year old boy with ASD and ADHD who lives with his mother, Tahiri.
Nurturing Families at L&M Hospital caseworker Grace Nelson, who works with Jaiden and Tahiri, contacted UCP’s Disability Support Program for funding assistance for the weighted blanket which can cost approximately $145 and up. The blankets are designed to provide pressure and sensory input for individuals with autism and other disorders. A weighted blanket can be used as a calming tool or for sleep. The pressure of the blanket provides proprioceptive input to the brain and releases a hormone called serotonin which is a calming chemical in the body.
We hope that Jaiden and his mom had the best night of sleep ever!
