Pushing objects into eyes/face?
My 3-year-old son was diagnosed with SPD about a year ago and had visits from an OT for about 3 months (until he aged out of our assistance program here). One of his issues that the OT was unsure how to address was his frequent desire to push objects into his eyes and face. Most often he pushes his face up against the legs and arms of other people, focusing on their joints like knees or elbows (I guess because they resist pressure better). He will also shove objects such as loose change or toys into the corner of his eyes.
I had him evaluated by two eye docs and neither of them found any problems with his vision. The OT suggested that we focus on the sensory input for the rest of his body and maybe the eye/face thing would resolve itself. We've seen improvement in other areas by doing therapy, but the eye/face problem not only remains, but may actually be getting worse.
Has anyone else experienced anything similar and if so, have you had any luck in working toward a solution? Thanks!
