Weighted products provide proprioceptive input that helps establish increased body awareness, improves attention span and concentration, and has calming benefits. Children who do not have sensory problems may also benefit from weighted products by helping calm tantrums, aid with attention span, and help relieve restless legs. Although there is no guaranteed formula for determining the weight, the common formula to use is 10% of the child's weight plus 1 pound. After the weight is selected, a therapist should observe the child to determine whether adjustments are needed.
