Excessive itching in autistic child
by Kathy Lea
(Princeton, NC USA)
My son is autistic and has increasingly complained about itching, to the point that he is miserable. I don't believe it is the result of an allergy, but because of his sensory disorder.
I'm interested in any way I can help him. Usually I rub him or I "brush" him with a soft brush his OT gave me.
