My son has SPD and a constant battle of Bum Picking
My son is 9 years old and has been diagnosed with SPD since he was 6 years. I can deal with virtually every aspect of his disorder apart from his constant bum picking which ends up on his fingers and then in his mouth.
I have tried speaking to him and explaining what he was doing is not healthy and he is going to make the rest of the family ill by spreading germs around the house with his hands, this picking comes about when he is focused mainly when playing his games, activities or watching TV.
This is so hard to write and put out there but any help in this area would be great.
