Hi- My son is 8. He is a sensory seeker!! :) Our worst ( or my worst) time is during a transition. From playing with lego's to his dad coming home from work or when we walk into a store with music...
When these things happen it's as if he can not longer contain himself. When his dad comes home from work he runs up to give him a hug, then makes a few subject changes complete with sound effects while jumping in place :) It sounds like a lot because it is. He will and has many times, even let our crazy dog inside while everything is in this hectic moment.
In the store he will do the same-- like it's not enough or too much imput so he wants to add more??
i really don't know.
He has a language delay so I find it more difficult to talk with him about how he is feeling.
What should we be doing in transition situations?? I called his OT lady but she has not called back.
Thank you for any suggestions and advice.
