We don't know what to do about OCD symptoms
Hi. Our child has SPD and is 7. Lately we've been experiencing a lot of OCD issues with her. She says she feels a dribble of urine after using the bathroom (when she is dry) and we'll have to go through countless pairs of underwear before she feels like it's enough. She is also brushing her teeth for an hour at night, continually asking for more and more toothpaste. These are just a couple of examples. We're not sure if this is just control, a game or real. We keep going back and forth about it. Anyway, it's getting out of hand, and sometimes we can't get out of the house with all the rituals.
Has anyone experienced this behavior? We have her in OT and therapy every week, but we can't seem to figure this out.
Thanks for your help!
