Photo: Facebook /Tututam

A blanket with shiny, soft or noisy surprises for children to discover - such a tool can be helpful for children with speech disorders who visit a speech therapist, but feel insecure in class at the beginning of the school year. Designer and the only manufacturer of such "unusual" blankets in Bulgaria is Borislava Kostova. She has helped dozens of children with special educational needs; children who experience attention deficit, anxiety, or are hyperactive.

You can read more about the therapy in "Weighted blankets help children and adults with health problems" – an article from the rich collection of Radio Bulgaria.
