A recent study published in the Journal of Sleep Research has found that the use of weighted blankets can significantly improve the sleep quality of children diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). These blankets — which are heavier than typical bed covers — have been shown to boost the duration and quality of sleep in the young participants. This research sheds new light on a simple and non-invasive method for improving sleep in children with ADHD.
