They say he is normal for a five year old...
I i answered yes to all but four on the sensory seeking behaviours, and the four i didn't answer yes to are actually sometimes.
The thing that bothers me the most is his sleep issues (which he is going to a sleep clinic for in February) Nightmares, inability to sleep without a bunch of blankets, difficulty falling asleep without being touched in some way, back rubbed, feet rubbed, hair touched, or bear snuggled. And he grinds his teeth all night.
His sleep issues affect his everyday life because lack of sleep affects his attitude.
The other thing that really bothers me, and bothers him socially because he gets teased for having yucky shirts is his inability to stop chewing, his hair, his clothes, his toys, everything...it's like he can't stop chewing on things. When he isn't chewing he is eating (which i guess is also chewing lol) or grinding his teeth.
I talked briefly with his doctor, and she said to wait until his six year check up to talk about it further because he just sounds like a normal five year old.
The nurse told me to get him a chewable necklace and some fidget toys until then.
after reading through this i know i have a lot of issues mentioned
