as a former therapist who has worked with children having sensory issues, I was really impressed not only with the tutorial, but also all the great information, links and updates provided. It really allowed,for other options, and each child of course may have different needs and responses to the weight. Sometimes all it takes is several blankets, and of course the issue of heat .... Heavier sometimes means hotter and that may not be needed in the warmer months. An addition to this are those stuffed animals that are weighted, and some can be heated a bit for aromatherapy, as well as warmth and weight. This is a wonderful tutorial and project! Thanks for sharing!
