Touching issues

by Diana
(Missouri)

My four yr old will rub her arms or a soft blanket when she gets sleepy. She also likes to be held, touched, especially wrestled with. Now at preschool she has started masturbating basically, rubbing her private areas. This is embarrassing and disturbing to her teacher and to us. She has been diagnosed with SPD by an outside OT but the school has done nothing to address the issue but call us and complain. Is this behavior by the child associated with the SPD diagnosis? We need some help! Thanks.
