My son is 9 & his OT's suggested the brushing protocol (a modified version since he's in school)3-4 x a day and it has seemed to backfire on us. He is now overstimulated and EVERYTHING is bothering him. We've stopped bushing but our bedtime routine is just AWFUL. He gets so worked up from everything bothering him (from his bedding, clothes, to itching eyes/nose/skin and now new fears of night time, crying, screaming) I'm really not sure what to do for him & our OT's haven't offered us any solutions past our normal weekly visits??? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
