Caty has sensory issues. None of which were addressed at her preschool, which annoyed me. They said they never saw things that I saw. But I know she does them. Here is some proof...just a bit.
She loves to color on herself with markers. At first I thought it was boredom but she does it even if we are busy with an activity. So we now hide markers and only get them out as needed.
This week we made finger paint with cornstarch and food coloring. At first she only wanted to use a brush, I wasn't concerned. I know she has a touch issue with certain messy things. No big deal there. But then she realized she liked the soft feel and began painting herself with the paint...
And she has also started playing with the glue. I have to hide the glue now. She will purposely either squeeze her hands full so she can rub her hands together as the glue dries. This causes the dried glue to ball and roll between her fingers. Or she just puts enough on to "pick" at her fingers forever, just staring at her fingers. Last week I actually caught her with the glue bottle and she was putting the glue between her toes...it felt soft and squishy she told me.
Help!!!! Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated and researched!!!
