A Weighted Blanket for Anthony to help him regulate his emotions

Posted Feb 13, 2020
A weighted blanket will help Anthony sleep at night but will also provide him comfort when he is feeling angry or overwhelmed. He is having some troubles sleeping and a weighted blanket was recommended to help reduce his stress and anxiety levels, and promote healthy sleep habits.

Anthony is 16 years old and lives in West Liberty, OH

Anthony has experienced a great deal of trauma, such as dependency, neglect, and abuse. Anthony has also witnessed domestic violence and substance abuse. He is diagnosed with PTSD, ADHD, and depression. Anthony also struggles with expressing his feelings and managing his anger. He has been in his current foster home for 2 years and is in the process of being adopted by them. Since being in care, Anthony has formed a close bond to his foster parents but continues to struggle with accepting his traumatic childhood experiences and communicating effectively. Anthony also has trouble sleeping and recently had a sleep study done. Anthony enjoys being active and is always offering to help on the farm. He plans to go to a vocational school for welding next year.
