Hitting and Swatting
My son, Noah, has a mild case of SPD and will sometimes hit or swat at us or others for no apparent reason, like when I come to pick him up from preschool. The other kids are hugging their moms and mine is swatting at me. Today I opened the garage door to help bring the groceries in and he swatted at me. What causes him to do this? Is it a sensory issue and what can we do to stop him from doing this? We've tried time-outs and taking things away from him such as no TV. What else can we do? I'm at my wits end!
