Extreme Dislike of Seatbelts

by Elizabeth
(Austin Texas)

Has anyone found a solution to their child's seat belt issues? My daughter (7) screams when using one. Therapists, OT, brushing, soft this or that, distractions while in the car have not figured this out.


She wants to join the Amish and never wear a seat belt. She has been this way from birth. Seems this might be something more than just sensory.
Any ideas?

I am googling seatbelts and sensory issues and came across your question. Mine is 11 and it is still a constant battle. She want to move to Idaho where seatbelts are not mandatory. I feel your pain.
