I have a little girl who is 4 years old and attends pre-school for a variety of problems including vision problems, but also fine motor delays. Her occupational therapist at school has stated that she has sensory integration problems. We are doing a sensory diet with brushing and movement and are even using a weight program.
The one problem we have consistently is that she hates to use the bathroom. She will not go in at home or anywhere near the restroom at school. At school she will indicate that she needs to use the restroom but when they try to take her in she begins to scream and runs away, then usually wetting herself. The OT at school as given us a few ideas to try, but does any one else have more ideas?
It seems like she does not like the sound of the room, the feel of the toilet, and is afraid of the flushing!
Thank you for your help!
