Hi there. My three year old son has what therapists have called "sensory issues." He does have vestibular and proprioceptive sensory needs. He is sometimes overstimulated and sometimes under stimulated. He is obsessed with closing doors. The weather has been wonderful here in South Florida recently and we have had the doors and windows open. He constantly closes the back door. When we visit friends and their doors are open to their back yards he MUST close them.
Sometimes I can avert his attention to other items but he always goes back to them. He used to have to have all the inside doors in our house closed and sometimes will close one or two of them but has since left them alone. Will he do the same with the outside doors? I'm not sure what to do about this. Is this part of the sensory problem?
Also, we are trying out a new pre-school this week (last one had wayyyy too many kids and he was completely overstimulated). They have no doors on their classrooms. Do you think this will cause a problem?
Thanks for your help.
