Occupational therapist

I work in a public school and started the brushing protocol on a child with autism. A week later the child had what the parents called a stomach virus therefore we stopped the program. Then resumed a week later the child appears fine although he is seeking more input. Deep pressure to be exact into his jaw.

Have you ever heard of this treatment increase the need for deep pressure. It seems he is pressing his chin on anything he can and now he is biting everything including other children and his teacher. We would like some guidance. Thank you
