The need for touch
by mommy of 2
my 2 year old son who has not been officially diagnosed with spd (yet his OT says he has alot of sensory needs and disabilities) which honestly thats fine with me so what if its not on paper he isnt in school yet and his OT is helping me with everything... my son is hypo in almost all his "senses" but especially when it comes to the need for touch he craves it 24/7.
we have "messy" play every morning for 1 to 3 hrs but thats not enough does anyone have any ideas of things i can bring with me in the car or in a store that he can get some kind of tactile sensation out of. keep in mind he is a 2 year old boy who craves slimy messy gooey things. the textured balls dont work. and i really need to be able to go to a store without him touching everything cause lots of things always wind up broken if his fingers aren't kept busy
