SENSORY DISORDER.

Daddy cut his hair and Cole could NOT stop rubbing it...he seriously rubbed his hair for 3 hours straight...that's what you call "Sensory Disorder". He is infatuated with textures...hence his blanky, Daddy's hair & the Car Seat fabric. But, can't stand to wear his shoes for more then 2 minutes at a time. From the beginning of June to September, Cole has "worn" his shoes a total of 2 hours. We just keep putting them back on and so do his teachers, but it's a battle ALL DAY LONG. His therapist said we NEED to keep putting them back on right after he kicks them off, or he will never be able to "stand" wearing shoes. It literally FREAKS him out to wear his right shoe...his left, he can handle for longer periods. 

For a week straight he rubbed daddy's hair till it grew a bit!
 
See how happy it makes him!
 
 ...as for mommy, she gets attacked...these are my battle wounds & they are everywhere.  Luckily winter is coming so I can "protect" my arms.  Cole got daddy's face pretty good...everyone asked what happened & we would say "Cole Freddy-kurgered his face". 

He decided to be sweet & give me a "Five", before attacking me again.

  1. I don't know if you've tried putting Converse high tops on him...but a friend of mine said that worked wonders with her son who has sensory issues. :)

  2. Daws has sensory stuff too. He hates wearing pants, especially denim. He asks for his shoes on right when he wakes up. Then they bug him, he wants them off. Then on again, off again... So it's hard to tell if he is sensory seeking there or avoiding. i guess it's possible to have both? He has other stuff too but his legs and feet I think get the worst of it.
