One hand in the mouth, one hand in the pants
(Clarkston, WA 99403)
I am an OT at an Elementary school. One of our kindergarten students assumes a very particular position whenever he is expected to be "calm and focused" in class. The middle and ring fingers of his left hand go all the way in his mouth. His entire right hand goes inside his underwear- way down there)Once it is time to participate, he touches everything and everyone. He also talks a lot and talks loud! His "position" of comfort needs to be altered for so many reasons. On a side note, he has very nice copying and cutting skills.
