We would like to say a HUGE thank you to the lads on the BP Bruce platform for there very kind donation for Jackson.
The money they have raised will be used to buy Jackson a ball blanket.
The rep has been to see us in hospital today and OT have assessed Jackson for it so we know that he is getting the one that will be most beneficial to him.
(I took this info about it off there website)
“The blanket can be used when there is a need to calm the body and mind. Mental and motor restlessness makes it hard to relax and impacts how we sense our bodies. Through the balls’ deep touch-pressure, weight and improved awareness of the body, they create calm, grounding and a sense of security.”
some country prescribe these blankets instead of using medication but for the UK sensory items like this are a luxury and not something that the NHS will fund. however the impact that this will have on Jax is unreal. so thank you xx
